Law as optional

I have taken law as my optional subject. Can we discuss the best books and strategy for the same.


  • I am in. We can form a telegram group.
  • @abhi44 Why not. Leave me a message.

    @Deepanjal As far as books are concerned Constitutional Law - Dukkis
    Administrative law - Internet or any short notes
    International Law - Shaw
    IPC - Bare Act and dukkis
    Tort - Bangia
    Contract - Bangia
    Mercantile - Bangia
    CLD - articles

    No need to read books cover to cover. Focus should be on preparing a 250 word answer on every topic and nothing else. Barring international law (some portions that too can be eliminated in option) and CLD in paper 2 questions are repetitive. Focus on revision and answer writing.
