After finalising a law school, there is another crucial decision you have to take. You can have a look at the BA LLB course details and get an idea of all the specialisations your college offers. Now, you have to pick an area of specialization that not only interests you but will also help you build a rewarding career in your preferred field. So, if you are unable to make a decision as to which area of specialisation you should choose, you must have some basic knowledge about some of the most sought-after career options in the legal field. Here is a brief overview of some of the most common and highly rewarding fields in the domain of law:

Civil Law
To become a civil lawyer, one must be aware of all the rights and acts related to family law, criminal law, and property law. Other than this, the individual must have an eye for detail, networking, analytical and logical skills to excel in this domain. A civil lawyer helps in handling damage suits, protecting privacy rights of individuals, drawing deeds and wills, handling breach of contract suits, and handling mortgages.

Tax Law
As the name suggests, this type of law specialisation focuses majorly on taxes, namely, income tax, real tax, estate tax, franchises, problems of inheritance, and other related areas. Since every organisation and individual needs to adhere to their nation’s tax law, the need for tax lawyers is ever-increasing. As a tax lawyer, you should have proper knowledge about all the policies, government rules and regulations related to taxes. You should also be able to come up with effective solutions that can help tax defaulters.

Criminal Law
The field of criminal law deals with offences and criminal acts that go against the rights, acts and policies defined by the jurisdiction. It is one of the oldest branches of law. As a criminal lawyer, you would have to interrogate suspects, witnesses, conduct trials, be in-charge of the findings or the proofs that play an important part in the case and can impact the judgement. A criminal lawyer may at times be required to examine and cross-examine witnesses in the court, present their case and findings in a proper manner and try to seek a fair judgement.

Environmental law
Environmental law refers to the area of law that is responsible for the protection, regulation, maintenance, and enhancement of the environment. It regulates the interference of humanity with the natural environment. Individuals, businesses, and corporations aim to reduce their environmental impact to adhere to the environmental laws laid down by the government. Environmental law is a vast subject and an amalgamation of politics and human rights that cover various issues related to the environment. Apart from the environmental laws, an environmental lawyer must also be aware of various environmental protection like climate control, noise control, energy regulation, and resource conservation.

Apart from the aforementioned specialisations, property law, commercial law, patent law, family law, business law, first amendment law, health care law are also some sought-after fields that an individual can consider as a career option. We hope that this information will help you make an informed choice.
