Sir, very well written article. I do agree with the analysis that a over-riding proportion of graduates from NLU's take up a career in law-firms. But the reason for the same are a combination of needs of economic secuirty, long gestation period in litigation and also the extremely high and prohibitive costs of living in cities like Mumbai and New Delhi (which provide the maximum opportunities). I feel many a times the hands of law-graduates are forced and they are not able to take up litigation, which they would wish to, because of the traditional, less-paying, non-encouraging and to an extent even exploitative nature of offices of most advocates (seniors) in litigation. Hope that changes in some time too...

Dear Shamnad Sir, very well written article. It does give a complete description of how good a Law Career can be, but with all due respect it is so rosy only for the National Law Grads only and only in Corporate Law. In litigation and people who have graduated from not so well known Law Colleges life in Legal Field is not at all rosy but filled with thorns alone.
