Papeya Dubey Student Expert 9th Sep, 2019


If you are seriously willing to pursue law not just as a course of study but a career in future, consider doing law program as a full-time course, BCI has not yet approved full time Law Programs in India, most of the university offers certificate and diploma courses only in distance education.
