Ques. How do I study for LLB exams and get good marks Im in LLB 1st year since 2 years? How do I write papers from Pune University?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 29 Sept 21

Ans. Exams are simple to pass, however gaining necessary information is a little tougher. It's the right technique to make your concepts obvious, mentioning sections and focusing on the bare act. Doing the following would be a lot easier method: Classroom lectures are always the most effective. Making running notes entails writing down what you believe is important. Choose a standard reading book (textbook/reference book) for each subject.  This is the only book you should read if you want to pass your examinations.  An author’s book, often known as a "Commentary," would be beneficial for conceptual clarity as well as legal expertise and terminology. Presentation is another useful tool. You could present the answer in your own distinct style. Make a clear format for how you'll write your answers. The following is an example of a possible response: A brief introduction (A line or two introducing the answer to the question) The case's/facts questions (if any) Provision of the law (Includes Section, Article, Clause if you know it) The inference made by you (the actual answer that is examined) Jurisprudence (if any) Conclusion If the issue is for lower marks, your structure can be simplified, but the Section, Article, Clause, and Case law should still be included. If recalling Sections and other details is tough, focus on the most important ones. When a topic is presented, the rest of the book can be read leisurely with consistent and pertinent references.Read more

Ques. Is doing law from Allahabad University good?

● Top Answer By Kasturi Srivastava on 28 Sept 21

Ans. The decision of taking admission here must be based upon what you are probing for and expecting of these five or three years. Here are some pros and cons that you may consider when you make your own decision Pros: Classes don't put a lot of pressure on you and usually finish by 2:00 in the afternoon. You have plenty of time to invest wisely in yourself.  If you want to go to the judicial services, invest this time in preparing for it.  If you are interested in litigation you can learn through internships in district court or high court. The fee for the 3 years law course is as least as possible and for the 5 years law course, it is lower as compared to other institutions providing the same degree.  Hostel and the mess fees are reasonably priced. Overall the place is affordable and good. Getting a degree from a central university always leaves you on the brighter side. Cons: Coming here will be useless if you are looking for a profession in the corporate/company sector.  The placement cell is zero and has no placement drives. The university does not get involved with your corporate/company dreams and internships. The teaching staff is no longer so promising as most of the renowned teachers have already retired. You might not get satisfied with the campus and college life as even the canteen is hard to deal with. So, choose wisely and make an informed decision that suits you best and will help your career to progress and move forward.Read more
