First, you need to decide what is your career goal now. Do you want to make a full fledged career in law or just want to do some part time work and utilise your education and skills. Then, you need to brush up on your skills.
To practice law, you will have to assist some senior advocate or solicitor for some years. Some other options you can consider - teaching, research, consulting, content providing, legal process outsourcing work. You can explore opportunities as Legal Writer and can provide written materials for the legal industry. There may be plenty of options. You need to explore them and decide what is right for you. You can also consult someone who is already working and well connected with the legal industry.
You can pursue further studies in some specialisation field like LLM (distance mode) or PG Diploma in areas like company law, labour law, human rights law, intellectual property, taxation law, International law. You can choose other lines too as per your interest.
Starting a career is always difficult and starting it after a gap is more difficult. But if you are well determined and trust your skills then put in your best efforts, things will get easier after some time.
