One of the core issues students at law school face upon graduation is to decide between a career in litigation or transactional law. Law School education has been unfavourably biased towards the litigation front and the burden is on the student to figure out the path he wants to tread upon. This paper has been designed to solve this dilemma and help provide substantive answers to the reader.

The following paper provides an elaborate discussion pertaining to the two fields of law; the manner in which law schools dispatch legal education; the nature of work involved in the two fields and the pros and cons associated with a career in either area of law.

The author has provided qualified notions which would be largely successful in clearing any doubts arising as to the nature of practice involved, benefits and problems associated with the practice and the future implications of the same.

The author hopes that the paper is successful in reaching out to its purpose of making the choice between the litigation and transactional law simpler and definitive.
