For good governance, political stability and economic development of a nation, social science is the driving force. Questions like how to conduct a nation? What plans and programs should be formulated? How should government body work? How sustainable is our monetary policy? And what are the implications of development plans and pro- grams are gauged by the study of social science.
Law is also under the umbrella of social science. It has interpersonal relationship altogether. At law schools subjects like political science, international relations, development and law, public welfare falls under social science domain.
Society makes the laws and law regulates the society and sets standards by which the rights of everyone are exercised diligently.
Law and social science must complement each other for achieving nation's right to sustainable socio-economic development. Social science is subject that must be known to all, law is known to few who are associated with judiciary and legislation. In job scenario there is no guarantee that a political science student will get immediate pay-roll jobs.
The students in pure science and technical field like doctors and engineers deserve jobs with better pay-scale. Their job is more secured.
Transparency in job markets, appropriate selection and recruitment based on academic merits, are the requisites of our nation. We are hiring people for jobs of political level who are uneducated, illiterates, and under-graduates, swine who enter without any knowledge and competencies and cannot take dignified approach and make biggest blunders by conducting dirty game in the name of politics. So social science looks into this aspect and builds bridges to make accessibility from every social background with sound knowledge and practice, qualified group of human resource into jobs.
In social sector, the problem is quality of education is declining; students are not much laboring hard but seek the easy way out and pass exams with lower grades. As a result, they do not have that core competency to fulfill the neces- sary criteria of job and some are not even employed. We need skilled, qualified bunch of professionals and for that University education is the major indicator. Post election, the requirement of human resource of skilled employees is 16,000 and a total of 3000 employees in legal jobs.
