List of Law Entrance Exams in India

Law, for a layman, means a system of rules and guidelines, legally enforceable. But as a profession, it means lots more and encompasses various fields such as litigation, media, IP, academics, etc.  Before they can do this, they have to pass some screening exams - namely Law Admission Exams to show that they are capable of studying this rigorous subject at a Bachelors level.  Keeping up to date with what is happening in the world and having the ability to read a lot is a good way to crack the law entrance exam.
