The aspirants for legal journalists career, should first consider completing a law degree followed by a suitable course in journalism. Internship with a legal news portal, media house or a law firm and active participation in seminars, conferences, symposium etc. on related subject matters is likely to help in this regard. To begin with hard word should be done to crack the competitive entrance examination for securing admission in a reputed law university preferably located in a major city. Knowledge of both Hindi and English typing and shorthand is likely to be useful in such career depending upon the place of work. Knowledge of other Indian language is also required in case working in regional areas.

Legal reporter is still not easily available in India. Generally junior reporters are asked to cover the Courts in the headquarter. In other cities, the local correspondents perform this duty. In respect of important cases, the junior reporter covers the court, but a senior reporter writes the report with legal interpretation.
This means any junior reporter has to cover the courts in his/her citiy. No specialisation is required to cover the courts. Legal Correspondents are chosen from senior reporters only in very big publishing houses.
