CSE 2011 Result Analysis: Candidates with Law background

Charm for Law as an optional subject had began last year with success of S Divyadharshini (AIR 1, CSE 2010). It has again come in spotlight as surprisingly some non-Law background candidates have shown big results this year.

The Law background candidate’s first consideration has to be their own stream of subject available i.e. Law.
It has been observed that Law background candidates consider it difficult to crack Civil Services Examination with Law as optional subject and think that it is easier to crack judicial services exams.

But, CSE 2010 topper S Divyadharshini had brought laurels to this subject by topping this coveted examination with Law as one optional subject. All of a sudden, this subject has been looked at with different theme and has caught the attention of many none Law background candidates who see potential in it to produce toppers.

There are more than two dozen successful candidates in CSE 2010 who achieved success with Law as one optional subject.

Candidates with Law among top 50 in list of successful candidates in CSE 2011
Rank Name Second optional Subject
6 Gitanjali Brandon Sociology
18 Nitika Pawar Political Science & International Relations
28 Ajay Katesaria Political Science & International Relations
39 Ravi Shankar Shukla Public Administration
42 Sidharth Sihag Public Administration

Which other alternatives the Law background candidates look for?
Most of the popular optional subjects like Public Administration, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Political Science & International Relations, History and Literature of Languages etc. are picked up by commerce background candidates.

But, as second optional subjects Public Administration is the most popular subject.

Future Trends
It is an attractive optional subject, but, I admit, not very popular. Reason for the not enough representation is that may be people with Law background have not explored the Career in Civil Services as lucrative as the opportunities available in judicial services, self-employment, in private sector and new economy careers.

In recent times, it has been observed that non-Law background candidates have also show interest in Law as an option particularly those preparing Public Administration and Political Science & International Relations are toying with an idea to pick it as second optional.

There are many institutes who have made serious efforts to highlight the prospects this optional subject has. Look at the recent as well as past results; you will agree and as the data speaks, every year many candidates secure higher ranks with Law as one optional subject.

From the recent result it is evident that success of non-Law background candidates like Nitika Pawar and Ajay Katesaria will start a new era for this subject.
