Scores from national-level exams like CLAT, LSAT India, TS LAWCET, etc. are accepted by some of the best law institutions in India.

Law companies, MNCs, government agencies, judicial bodies, banks, and litigation are just a few of the many industries where people with LLB degrees might find employment.
