LLB and UPSC

I am planning to pursue LLB from DU. Can I manage my preparation alongwith the course?

Comments

  • go for it bhai,
    nobody prepares for UPSC full time..

    this is the mistake everyone commits in this preparation.. i did the same.
    one professional or masters degree certainly helps in this uncertain preparation

    you may also try for IGNOU MA in your optional

    Yes it can be.

    I agree with @amsc . Even that's a good option.

    I did LLB from Mumbai university while appearing for my first attempt. Knowledge of law will definitely will help u in some way or the other.

    I heard that there are several such law students in DU who have doing both.

    Go for it.

  • I passed out this year from Law faculty, DU.


    What I realised is that one can't study both law as well as for UPSC together well. I was consistently able to score above 60% in each semster. But, i had to let my UPSC preparation take a back seat.

    I have a lot of batchmates preparing for UPSC together with law. Most of them have backlogs.
    And, as for the records, there has not been even a single result from Law Faculty in UPSC among the current students.

    The 1-2 results have been of the pass outs from the faculty.

    Nevetheless, i have friends who managed to score around 50-55% and give their major time to CSE preparation.

    Also, the prelims and mains tend to clash or be very near to semester exams. As for this year, our sem exams finsihed by May end and the Prelims was on 3rd June.

    You have all the info. Decide for yourself.
  • I am a student at CLC and to an extent, I would like to second the opinion of @abhi44 . Since last August, I haven't been able to dedicate more than a week to any exam (PCS/ACIO/CSE), but that is majorly due to my own fraud. Nevertheless, it is difficult to manage academics, internships and competitive exams at the same time.

    So the question you should ask is why do you want a degree in law? If you want to go for research/higher studies in law then you may have to drop the idea of CSE. If you just want a degree or try a career in corporate sector/litigation then you can consider it, but you must understand that placement scenario is not that good.

    There would definitely be opportunity cost attached to it, but it is manageable if you believe that with your talent, CSE does not require 24*7*365 attention. But you cannot be doing anything just for the sake of it, without any interest.

    @GoingLegal

    Yes. With the only difference that he cleared it and I am yet to. Not much hopes with the 2018 pre.

    Sibal is most top lawyer today.

    I am..yes though sometimes end sem exam do clash with upsc date sheet(like last year in december it clased with ifos) had to leave 2 papers (got back) but its worth it..its better than wasting time ...if u have prepared for upsc once then go for it..u can easily get 50-55% with around 1week proper study..attendence wont be an issue as faculty is mostly student friendly(one hardly gets detained for short attrndence unless one totally stop coming to class) for other info u can DM me. :)
