Why LLB?
LLB is a better choice than any nonprofessional MA or MSc degree after graduation. It will alleviate your social status in the society. You will be able to help the people. Just after 2 years of experience, you may appear in the exam of civil judge, so it is recommended that you must not only actively take part in  your legal practice but also stay in touch with law books.
