In the ever-evolving world of careers, choosing the right path can be a daunting task, especially for law graduates. The conventional route, litigation, has been a well-trodden path for many in the legal profession. However, there is more to this world of jurisprudence than just courtroom battles. Ms. Pragati, an alumna of TMU’s College of Law and Legal Studies which is among the best law colleges in India, and a recent selection in PCS-J 2022, provides valuable insights into how to shape your destiny in the field of law. An Alumni mentorship was held at TMU on 9 Oct 2023.
A Non-Conventional Journey

If you are a law graduate and hesitant about pursuing a career as a lawyer, it's time to shed your worries. Ms. Pragati's journey exemplifies how law graduates can explore various career avenues, not limited to litigation.
A Broad Spectrum of Opportunities
Law is a dynamic career choice that spans various fields. It is not just about arguing cases in a courtroom. Today, you can consider a career in Patent Law, Corporate Law, and much more. A law degree offers a wide array of career paths, including corporate management, administrative services, and legal services.
Ensuring Speedy Justice
In the current global scenario, the demand for quick and efficient justice is paramount. Delays in justice can sometimes lead to further injustices.
