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.
|Rank||Name||Second optional Subject|
|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.
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.Last Update Friday 29th June 2012
