Can LLB be done through Distance /Correspondence mode ?

We receive a no of queries regarding LAW Degree asking us if LLB is possible in Correspondence Mode or Distance Mode. It is because now a days there is much craze of LLB among the youngsters as there are many options for LAW degree holders. You can read Job /Work Opportunity after LLB from here.

There are a no of students who wish to make their career in Law. But the circumstances like financial problem at the time of studies leading to early jobs or work or job while studying make it impossible for them to purse their dreams as regular candidates. As a result they keep searching for institutes that can offer them Law degree through Distance Mode.

But the question still persists if you can pursue law as a private candidate. And the Answer is ” No”. No university offers LLB in correspondence mode. So if you wish to pursue your LLB, you will have to do it regularly.

Even some universities provide Evening Classes for LLB students. But you will have to be alert about them whether the Evening Time degree offered by them has got approval by Bar Council of India or not. For that you can visit the official website of BCI.

Other Options rather than LLB –

If some of you can’t do LLB as regular candidates, you must think for other options related with law. Here are some –

Bachelor’s in Academic Law ( BAL) –

We can also do this course through correspondence mode. But this course won’t make you eligible on par with LLB, allowing you argue in Law court. This course will provide you necessary knowledge regarding legal matters which may help you get job as legal advisers in legal department of any firm.

You can also work with NGOs as legal consultant. You can also start your own work as legal advisor or you can get job as educationist/ teacher in some law school.

PG Diploma Programmes in Tax Laws/Management –

If you possess Graduation Degree on Commerce, you can go for Post Graduation Diploma in Tax Laws or Management etc. These courses are offered by a no of universities. You can check them by visiting the official websites of some good universities.

Again we tell you that Correspondence /Private/Distance Learning LLB has been banned by Bar Council of India.
