About BA – LLB
Bachelor of Law, abbreviated to BA. LLB, is an integrated undergraduate course of study in the field of law. This study program lasts for duration of five years and can be pursued by a student after he has successfully completed his 10+2 level board examination. The origin of this course of study was in England; but today the study of law has been introduced in every law abiding country of the world. There are specific colleges and universities in India which provide the BA.LLB course of study to aspiring students. In most cases, a student can seek admission to these colleges / universities by successful completion of entrance tests conducted by the law institutes followed by a group discussion and a personal interview.
Law is one of the most popular professional courses available to students in India. Legal education in India is supervised and regulated by the Bar Council of India. It was the Bar Council of India which introduced the concept of autonomous law schools in the country that offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the field of law. A student who has earned the BA.LLB degree is qualified for practice of law in the country. The legal profession is respectable and holds a number of opportunities for a bright career. It can well be said that law is an everyday part of human life. It is because of the existence of law that an organization, a house or even a society functions without any disturbances. Therefore even if there is a minor disruption in the day to day functioning, a legal practitioner is summoned to the scene.
Though academic qualifications are necessary to secure a job in the legal profession, there are certain skill sets that a person must possess to excel in his work as a legal practitioner. For instance, communication skills and staging skills are very important to become a successful lawyer. Needless to say, it is the law department that looks after justice and well being of the society, therefore honesty is a prerequisite to becoming a well known and successful lawyer.
A candidate sitting for an entrance test to pursue the BA.LLB course is given questions which test his / her logical reasoning, legal knowledge, general knowledge and school level English, mathematics and science knowledge. While the graduation program of law, the BA.LLB degree, is sufficient to secure a job in the legal sector of the country, there are post graduation programs too that help to increase knowledge and give a candidate a strong footing in the world of law.
