sir,Mei apna bcom compkete kr chuki hu but maine sol se bcom ki h to mei llb kr skti hu aur graduation hogyi h to llb vourse ki duration kya hogi 2yrs or 3yrs

Sanjanaleekha 6th Dec, 2019

Hi there,

As per the rules of eligibility of Bar Council of India, for admission in 3 year LLB course you should have completed senior secondary education i.e. 10+2 and in addition to this you should also be a graduate degree holder, there is no rule which says that you cannot take admission in 3 year law course if you have done your graduation from open school. So to answer your question yes, you can take admission in LLB and the duration of the same will be of 3 years because as per the rules of BCI LLB can be done after graduation and the duration of the same should be of 3 years. I have attached a link of top LLB colleges in India where you can do your 3 year LLB for your reference, https://law.careers360.com/articles/9564-law-entrance-tests


sir du LLB classes konsi launguage me hogi hindi/english.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 4th Dec, 2019


delhi university has only english as the language of llb course study. professors will take class on english version. if you are from hindi medium in 10+2 course or in graduation you may face little difficulty at first, but if you every day read some news paper on english and do watch english news channel, you may overcome the rigidness over english.

hope you may understand.
