    Hi Friend:

    To become a lawyer you have to get an LLB degree. There are number of national and state universities offering law degrees in India.

    Legal education has been traditionally offered as a three-year graduate degree conferring the title of LL.B. (Bachelor of Laws) or B.L. (Bachelor of Law). 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 undergraduate degree programme and confer an integrated honours degree, such as "B.A., LL.B. (Honours)", "B.B.A, LL.B. (Honours)", "B.Sc., LL.B. (Honours)", etc. Both the types of degrees (i.e., three-year and five-year integrated honours) are recognized and are also qualifying degrees for practise of legal profession in India. A holder of either type of degree may approach a Bar Council of any States of India and get upon compliance with the necessary standards, be enrolled on the rolls of the said Bar Council. The process of enrollment confers a license 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

    Five-year course

    Qualification- 10 +2 with minimum of 50% marks

    Three-year course

    There are very few universities left that offer a 3 year course. Some of them are Delhi University based in Delhi and Banaras Hindu University based in Varanasi. They conduct their own entrance examination. Some colleges accept students based purely on merit.
    Examination pattern

    Exams test students on English, general knowledge, numerical ability, legal aptitude and logical reasoning.

    There are a variety of career options available to law graduates.

    • Join legal practice as a civil lawyer or a criminal lawyer
    • Join the Judicial Services of the state as a Magistrate after passing an entrance examination and work as a Civil Judge or Judicial Magistrate
