Dear Student,

If one has specialisations in B.Com and BA LLB, one can easily look out for jobs as an advocate in both the fields. Candidates can look out for various career options after law and shortlist the ones that interest them.

If you are unsure about which career is the most suitable for you, take our Career Profiling Test. It would take your Aptitude, Personality and Interest in concern and pick out the apt one for you.

For any more concerns, either talk to our admission experts by dialling 1800-572-9877 or writing back in the QnA zone.

Thank ...
