Best Law Books for CLAT and Other Law Exams
Many students ask, “What is the best book for TPA in 2023?” or “What is the best book for Constitution?” and so on.
One word answer is – BARE ACTS of these are the best and the very first book you must finish before you look/buy/bother about other reference books or notes.
As I have repeatedly said that bare acts are the backbone of law, and whatever notes, MCQ, test, and more you see have their roots in bare acts. If you properly read these, you are golden.
But, still, if you are looking for some great law books, then here is a list of the best law books for most major law subjects. These books will help you prepare for college exams as well as Judiciary Exams and all other Law Exams.
Now, the links are affiliate links that will take you to Amazon. If you like, you may buy from there or buy from shops near a court in your area. In both places, you will find discounts. I believe in shops you may find a better deal. If you buy via these Amazon links, I may get a small commission at no extra cost to you.
If you find these books expensive you may buy amazing and beautiful Bare Act PDFs from WritingLaw at fraction of the price.
Two bare act books from Amazon or a shop near you will cost you more than 300 rupees. You can get 53 bare acts and more as nice PDFs in just 340 rupees.
