"How academically intensive is Law at National Law Universities?" [CLAThacker on Quora]

Question details-

"I'm just an above average student in school (around 75-85%) and I am thinking of law as a career option. I want to know the study burden in National Law Schools so I decide if I wish to pursue law."

Law is a field for hard working people. Read interviews by the most famous lawyers in our country. NLSIU, Bangalore and NLU, Delhi are very good but at the same time life is very tough academically. NUJS, Kolkata is quite relaxed but to be a topper you have to study regularly. I believe NALSAR, Hyderabad is also not as intensive as NLSIU. Also, there all kinds of students at Law Schools, ranging from those who got 68% in Boards, to those who got 98% and National Scholarships. That was answering your question.

But now for some life advice - every profession is a slog, and Law is no different. Let me repeat that, life is a slog. If you want to earn fancy six-figure salaries, no one is going to hand you that for just sitting at their cubicles. Being and advocate is also hard work and you are engrossed in your profession. Law firms also expect you to put in hard hours which can range from 9-12 hours day. Being an in-house counsel or an academician affords a better balance. 

My advice is to read up on life. So many engineers also put in long hours. Doctors also have it incredibly tough. The vast majority, especially those not from top places earn a pittance for the long hours. Life is tough, and hard work is there everywhere. If you are in a profession which you love, things are considerably better.

I'm just an above average student in school (around 75-85%) and I am thinking of law as a career option. I want to know the study burden in National Law Schools so I decide if I wish to pursue law.
