Overview of the Program

In India, legal education has been traditionally offered as a Three-Year graduate degree conferring the title of LL.B. (Bachelor of Laws). However the legal education system was revised by the Bar Council of India, the governing body of legal education in India in 1984. Pursuant thereto, various autonomous law schools were established that administer a five-year (5 year) undergraduate degree program and confer an integrated honours degree, such as “B.LS, LL.B Both the degrees (i.e., Three-Year and Five-Year integrated honours) are recognized and considered as qualifying degrees for practice of legal profession in India. A holder of either type of degree may approach a Bar Council of any State of India and get upon compliance with the necessary standards, be enrolled on the rolls of the said Bar Council of India. The process of enrollment confers a licence to the holder to practise before any court in India and give legal advice. The entire procedure of enrollment and post-enrollment professional conduct is regulated and supervised by the Bar Council of India and CET Commission. CET Examination is compulsory for the students desiring to pursue law.

The College offers a 3 Year degree course and a 5 Year Degree Course. CET Examinations need to be attended by students in order to secure an admission in the law college. The course consists of six(6) semesters for 3 Year Course and ten (10) semesters for 5 Year Degree Course.
