Kent’s Answer

If you are asking how to obtain a legal position with a company, and assuming you complete your law degree and obtain whatever certification or license may be required for the practice law in the place you want to work (e.g., India, U.S., or whichever location), you will need to be prepared to demonstrate to a company that you satisfy all the qualifications required for the position, and that you have legal training and experience in the particular area of law that the company needs (e.g., litigation, real estate, finance, intellectual property, etc.), and it is usually very helpful to have knowledge and experience in the industry that the company is part of. For example, if you want to obtain a legal position with a bank, it would serve you well to be able to demonstrate knowledge and experience in the banking industry. Also, since companies rarely hire lawyers without legal experience, I recommend you first try and obtain relevant work experience with a law firm, court, or other place where you can grow your practical legal skills and knowledge. Finally, if you happen to know someone who works for the company or works with the company (e.g., a major vendor or partner or supplier of the company), that can be very helpful in setting you apart from other candidates looking for a position with the company. Best of luck!
