YoungBuzz Counselor - Hi Sachin,

If you have an opportunity to work abroad and continue staying there then its advisable that you get some work experience here and then apply for masters abroad.

From an Indian law firm perspective, the LLM really doesn...'t help you if you come back to India immediately after the LLM. If you plan to come back to India or are forced to come back for a job after the LLM, then it's better that you get some work experience before you go for the LLM. After 3-5 years of work ex in India, the LLM may help a little bit but not much with Indian law firms. Your salary with the Indian law firms will certainly not jump drastically after the LLM. Yes, if you manage to get 4-5 years work ex after your LLM with a law firm in US and then come back to India, that would certainly help you in the law firms in India.

Nevertheless, working in India is a good option these days since there quite a lot MNCs and LPO companies hiring expereienced lawyers, but there too a lot will depend on your work experience in India.

Yes indeed there are a lot many law graduates who go for a course in CS and function as company secretaries in various firms.

Company Secretaries are recognised by law, as one of the principal officers of the company. You will act as legal advisors to the company, plan expansion opportunities, oversea collaborations, amalgamations, acquisitions, mergers, etc.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to write back for further queries.

All the best, Sachin!
