National Law Schools provide an edge to clear

Civil Services (Main) Exam

At least eight law graduates, five from the National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata (NUJS), two from the National Law Institute University, Bangalore and one from National Law University Jodhpur, have cleared the Civil Services (Main) Examination conducted by the Union Public Services Commission. The five from NUJS are Shruti Ojha, Mansi Loiwal, Sucheta Chatterjee, Harssh A Poddar, and Aparajita Rai while Ananya Agarwal, who was ranked 27, is a graduate of NLU Jodhpur. The two students from NLIU are Adwait Singh (Ranked 92) and Harshita Mathur (Ranked 112) 

Shruti Ojha (Rank 82)

"Law School played a major role. Law schools provide an excellent platform to write this exam as evident from the number of law school graduates who clear it. The study of law is helpful in General Studies as well." 


Mansi Loiwal (Rank 83)

"Law school education definitely gave me an edge in the written exams as I took law as my optional. It also helped me immensely in General Studies which tests your general awareness about socio-economic and legal issues. In fact, the first question I was asked by the interview board was about my law school experience.

Although, the number of law students clearing civil services is very less when compared to engineering or medicine backgrounds, I think a law graduate can definitely do well in administration or diplomacy."

Sucheta Chatterjee (Rank 84)

"Law was one of my optional [papers], apart from Political Science. NUJS really helped me build my base and get a grasp over some basic concepts of law and legal theory. In the UPSC exams, it's your understanding of concepts which helps, not rote learning because the pattern of questions has changed over time."

Aparajita Rai (Rank 358)

"I realised the significance of my legal background during preparation, training and even now when I'm actually working. A subject like law exposes you to the problems present in the society as well as the solutions that are or could be made available. Plus a cosmopolitan environment like in a law school broadens one's mind."

Harssh A. Poddar (Rank 361)

"The rigour of premier law schools like NUJS and Oxford assures a certain academic discipline that goes a long way in ensuring success.

However having served in the IRS I find that legal education is even more useful after one joins the government. As a hard skill, so much of what we do in every service requires an aptitude for law. As a soft skill, a great law school gives one unparalleled exposure, holistic development and people skills, which is much appreciated at all echelons of government."
