A career in law is best fitted for those who are very much enthusiastic about the world of law and fascinated with the system of justice. The fast-growing pace of the legal profession makes it one of the most lucrative and the most respected careers in Ireland today.
To make a professional in law, one will need to pursue a professional law course. A large number of institutes and universities in India are offering law courses where one could select a specialization into one of the various arms of law such as corporate law, civil law, criminal law, and international law, labor law, patent law, tax law and so on.
These Law courses can be pursued at both undergraduate as well as postgraduate levels including LLB and LLM from various institutes and universities recognized worldwide. You can also join an employment law course through various online sources.

However, the duration of these courses may vary according to the specialization and the time required for practice or internship. The minimum qualification that one requires to complete for pursuing a course in Law is to pass 10+2.
This is the eligibility after which you will be spending your 3-5 years in pursuing an LLB degree, whereas, a PG program in law, i.e. LLM, requires you to gain an LLB degree first. The minimum duration to complete LLM is two years.
Once you have pursued a law course, you will be having a large number of opportunities to opt for employment such as courts of law, in government service, as a law teacher, as a legal advisor to a company or a business house, etc. One could also go for private practice to provide services as a legal advisor's advocate, solicitor, etc.
For the starters, who have already started practicing over legal terms and activities but want to pursue a law course for an addition to their curriculum vitae and to improvise their job prospects, many law institutes provide distance learning courses.
These distance learning courses are best for those who do not have enough time to dedicate to the college. Another advantage of distance learning is that it is less expensive as well as less time-consuming compared to regular courses, and offers both bachelors and masters level courses in Law i.e. LLB as well as LLM.
