Dev Alkesh Parekh, a second year student of 5-year BA LLB programme at Jindal Global Law School, Sonipat opted for the course primarily due to the subjects offered, besides the saving of one year. “I expect this course to continually increase my curiosity in the working of our world and deepen my knowledge to explore by myself,” he says.
The BA LLB course has various subjects, which enable the students to look into the past issues and the objectives of legal education. Also, it allows to focus on the socio-political reasons behind a given law domain.
Is there a difference?
The integrated BA LLB/BBA LLB/BCom-LLB programmes have certain commonalities, the difference is in periphery of the course. The legal knowledge derived is the same in all the three courses, but it changes the way you approach the legal subjects. A relatively new addition is BSc LLB.
The BA LLB programme is a combination of Arts and Law, and it helps you to approach law with a humanities perspective. “The BA-LLB starts nurturing students to understand the social and political aspects of a particular Law,” says Dev.
The BCom LLB is a blend of Commerce and Law subjects whereas BBA LLB covers Business and Management topics. Here, Commerce and Trade are not only ingrained in Law, but play a decisive role in development. BCom and BBA LLB courses assist the students interested in unraveling the complex world of Commercial and Corporate Law. The integrated courses don’t change the understanding of law per se, but merely change in the way you look at it.

Employment opportunities are more in the areas of commerce and business administration. The student should choose the stream as per his comfort and competence
These courses are spread over 10 semesters, including internships and legal trainings in areas linked to the subject. The internships are pursued generally after gaining a fair understanding of the specialized course modules.
“There is always a need for professionals who have holistic understanding of the area in which they are presumed to be experts. Dedicated professionals are the need of the hour because of changing business needs,” says Prof. Harpreet Kaur, National Law University, Delhi.
The career opportunities for these courses are almost the same. If one wishes to practice law, then a BA LLB programme turns out to be a good choice. And to augment the skill set, one often specializes in fields such as accounting, taxation or even CA, CS, or CMA. On the other hand, if one wants to work in the corporate sector, BCom/BBA LLB will be more apt. The present trend is that more graduates are choosing Corporate Law after completing BBA/BCom LLB courses.
