How can I earn online? I am law student exploring options to make money through internet.

To be able to earn money, you need to create value for others so that they return you a portion of that value in the form of money. Being a law student, the best option for you is to help people solve their legal problems. Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Start a YouTube channel on law: talk about how the law works, what are the common pitfalls, etc. Start with something general, and then over time, figure out which type of people are finding your content useful, and then double down on that. For instance, start writing about law, in general, and if you find that small business owners are viewing and commenting more on your channel, you can narrow down your focus to law for small businesses.
  2. Provide Legal consultancy: because you are still a student, many people may shy off from giving consultancy projects to you, especially in a topic as critical as law. However, there are some not-so-critical topics in law. Basis my minimum understanding of the law, I think there are some such areas - non-disclosure agreements, drafting a legal notice, small ticket size service agreements, drafting resolutions, etc.
  3. Start a Blog on law: this would be similar to the YouTube channel. Through your blog and YouTube channel, you can showcase your legal expertise and use that as a funnel to draw customers to your Legal Consultancy work. Basically, people who will read or watch your content and find it useful would want your consultancy services.
  4. Start an online course on law: I don’t know how the entrance exams in law work. However, if you’ve got a decent rank in your competitive exams, you may want to guide students on how to do that. For instance, through my blogs, I have guided IIT-JEE aspirants (now JEE Advanced).

Apart from this, if you want to start something outside the law as the domain, then you’d have a lot of options. However, competition will also increase. Anyway, here are a few suggestions:

  • Provide Content writing services
  • Provide Video making services
  • Sell T-shirts
  • Take-up coding and freelancing projects

Needless to say, you might need to learn some new skills to be able to take assignments in the above domains.

I have written a detailed answer about what I did to earn money when I was in college. Here it is:

Cheers and all the best!
