Can a Non-Law Student Select Law as Optional Subject for IAS (mains)?



The Answer to it is Yes - Reasons as mentioned below.


Choosing Right Optional Subject for IAS (mains) - A Key to Success.

The study of Indian political system and the Indian legal system coupled with the evolving contemporary issues and contemporary legal developments is an integral part of general studies matter for both non-law students and law students as well. Therefore, non-law students opting for law as a optional paper in civil services (mains) examination, cannot at all be apprehensive of the subject matter because it will only strengthen their grip on the aforesaid subject matter. Following examples for issues will an eye opener to them.


a) Freedom of speech and expression under Article 19(1) insures freedom of press and right to information (contemporary issues).

b) the status of right to die under article 21 and right to be killed (mercy killing) widely interpreted by judicial decision and the recent step taken by the Government i.e. the mental health bill to decriminalise section 309 of IPC is also are important subject matter of studding for each irrespective of this status.

c) The latest decision of Hon’ble Supreme Court upholding the Bombay High Court landmark judgment to establish gender equality guaranteed in the Indian constitution by way of opening entry to Muslim women in south Bombay famous. Hazi Ali Dargah inner Santorum is important for all the students.

d) Application of sedition law (124A of IPC in view of anti-Indian slogans in case of JNU episode or Amnesty international slogans in Bengaluru is also an important subject matter of study.
Thus, there are a number of constitutional, international and contemporary legal developments which are essentially an integral part of law optional which needs to be gone through by both law and non-law students as well.


Secondly the pattern of question since the beginning with respect to law optional paper have always been straight forward and to the point. The aspirants have only to refer to one or two land mark cases along with relevant provisions (part of polity also) and the percentage of marks will be mathematical unlike history or geography which are vast, twisted, source base and highly technical/scientific, not earning comprehensible to the students. This is true with the public administration and sociology also. The basic problems with candidates is prima facie the understanding of the questions in other subject unlike the law paper. The law paper only demands practice of test series which is being successfully provided by Pahuja Law Academy in 2016. Besides, sound conceptual structure is also evolved in international relations by going through international public law. The percentage of results is yet another measuring rod for non-law students. The line of common understanding is the same between law student and non-law student. So, it is fallacious to nurture an apprehensive within non-law aspirants with respect to law optional paper altogether.

Thirdly the real-life examples of non-law students coming out with flying colours in civil services examinations are many and varied as for example the success of a medico opting law as an optional paper (Saloni) in 2015 is quite inspiring. The students of humanities in comparison to medico and engineering students will have a better perception of law paper in civil services examinations.
