To acquire these basic skills, the prerequisite is analytical ability, logical thinking, open mindedness and a keen interest in this field. Due to the nature of their stream, science students are expected to be good at analytical reasoning. This can help students from the science stream if they choose law as a career option.
Also, when we look at the use of forensic science in law, that can be a strong area for science stream students. In such areas, the students (who are trained to make good use of data and evidences to prove their points) can shine on the job
Apart from this, the exam pattern of CLAT is mostly based on reasoning ability, legal and logical reasoning, and quantitative techniques — which is believed to be the forte of science students.
