Types of Lawyers in India

by Sam Smith Search Engine Marketing

Lawyers are professionals who help us out if we are having problems with the law of our country. Lawyers in India can be divided into two main types. They are criminal lawyers and civil lawyers. Criminal lawyers are those who deal with cases regarding crime and all the other types of cases come under civil lawyers. Whatever type of lawyer you want to become, you need to study at a law institute in India. Here are some of the types of lawyers that have high demand in India.

Criminal Lawyer: A criminal lawyer has the responsibility to defend people as well as organizations that are being charged by criminal offence. Every law academy in India has a course for criminal law and one can specialize in it after completing one's basic education in law. It is the job of the criminal lawyer to investigate about the case, interview the accused and the witnesses, etc. The lawyer also has to conduct research on laws related to the case and construct a case for his/her client.

Business Lawyer: Every company needs a lawyer. A business lawyer not only defends the company in court in case of any legal issues but also provides legal advice. It is the responsibility of the business or corporate lawyer to review business documents and to prepare as well as negotiate business agreements. It is the business lawyer's job to explain the business laws of the country to the company or business owners.

Family Lawyer: Family lawyer, as the name suggests, is a lawyer who focuses on issues that matter at the domestic front. You can consult a family lawyer for issues like divorce, child custody and child support, separation, domestic abuse, dowry cases, pre-nuptial arrangements, etc. A family lawyer also supports a couple during the adoption process of a child.

Intellectual Property Lawyer: Protecting a person's intellectual property is the responsibility of this lawyer. If you want to get a patent for something you have created, the lawyer can help you to do that. Also, if you face any patent or copyright dispute, the intellectual property lawyer would be the one to help you out.

Apart from the above mentioned types of lawyers, there are several others found in India. These include lawyers who work in the following fields: labor law, international law, real estate law, property law, environmental law, etc. The Indian law academy offers all these courses to people who aspire to build a career in one of these fields.

There are several job opportunities for lawyers. While some lawyers work independently or in other words have their own practice, there are those who work in companies.

Knowing about the different types of lawyers in India will help you to look for the right one when you need one. Do your research well before selecting a lawyer so that you choose only the best.
