The legal education sector in India is one of the fastest growing educational sectors in India. The interest among students in pursuing law as a career has been steadily on the rise and this can be seen from the fact that the year 2016 saw the highest ever number of applicants to the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) with more than forty-five thousand students applying for the test. This surge in interest is owing to the fact that the legal profession today offers a wide range of opportunities in addition to litigation oriented practice. Law is viewed not merely as an instrument of social control, but also as an instrument of social change. Lawyers have been characterized as social engineers. As liberal education, legal education may serve the society by imparting to law students general and cultural education making them good law-abiding citizens. Such education will instill into the students the significance and relevance of democratic culture. Compared with science, technology and medicine, legal education is less technical or less professional. As professional education, legal education equips law students for filling different roles in society, and discharging various law jobs, the range and scope of which is always expanding in the modern democratic society, e.g.—Policy makers, administrators, lawyers, law teachers, etc.
