    Gone are the days when parents used to choose medicine or engineering as a profession for their children. In the past few years, India has seen radical changes in terms of the choices of a profession. Seeking justice for the society is a noble cause; that makes law-a worthy choice. If the law is the path you want to pursue, then look nowhere else. Why settle for mediocrity; when you can be the supreme.

    Like every other profession, you have to crack entrance exams to be the cream of the top. Law exams are conducted at both national and state levels. It isn’t wise to lay all your eggs in one nest. Attempting both of these, would increase the probability of getting admissions at one of the premier law schools. Candidates irrespective of region or nationality can apply and appear for the national level test.On the contrary, only the candidates who are locals of the state can apply and appear for the examination conducted at the state-level.

    Law Entrance exams are usually conducted once in a year: scheduled in the duration of March-June. Mentioned below are some of the top law entrance exams that aspirants can take-up. Carefully look at the dates of the exam, so that they do not clash and plan accordingly.
