In India today, the legal profession is growing in lockstep with one of the world’s most dynamic economies. It’s no surprise then— that in terms of absolute numbers— India’s legal profession is the world’s second largest, with over 1.4 million enrolled lawyers in legal practices nationwide.

In India today, the legal profession is growing in lockstep with one of the world’s most dynamic economies. It’s no surprise then— that in terms of absolute numbers— India’s legal profession is the world’s second largest, with over 1.4 million enrolled lawyers in legal practices nationwide.

There are around 1,200 law schools in India currently, with close to 80,000 enrolments taking place every year. With increasing globalization and constant policy reforms in India, the demand for legal services is higher than ever before.

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) has been fortunate to play a small part toward meeting this increased demand for legal education in India, as the country surges its efforts toward providing universal access to justice. LSAC provides some of its key services and products to Indian law colleges and law aspirants, including the LSAT—India—an entrance test specially created for the Indian legal education system— for high school students who want to apply to law schools.

LSAC’s mission in India aligns with its larger global goal of improving access to legal education and adding to the diversity of the legal profession. As LSAC furthers its commitment to build a stronger legal education and professional community across India, it continues to launch initiatives in India that take this mission forward and support law school aspirants on their enrollment journeys.
