Who is a Legal Advisor?

A legal advisor's job is both profitable and fraught with duties, pressure, and excitement. A legal advisor can work for both the government and the private sector. A person must be an eligible advocate with the Bar Council of India’s ‘Certificate of Practice’ and have some experience in the subject in which he or she provides legal advice to become a legal advisor.

The legal advisor in the government sector could be the solicitor general, the assistant solicitor general, extra solicitor general, attorney general, and so on. Apart from these individuals, the government may retain individual lawyers for help on any specific problem, such as the interpretation of a treaty in light of current law or a particular issue. In the private sector, a lawyer can be employed as a legal advisor to a company or an MNC to advise on any specific matter such as labor laws to be followed by that corporation or their Corporate Social Responsibility under law.
