One of the biggest dilemma in the career of a law aspirant is to decide the right career path along with the course.
What is an Integrated LLB Course?
An integrated course, offered by many eminent universities in India, aims to get lawyers ‘industry-ready’. Also, the course provides two degrees to the student, one of which is law and the other is chosen by the student.
When studying for an integrated law course, a student gets two traditional degrees. While the law course is all about pursuing the LLB degree from a Law School. On the other hand, the integrated degree is a modern approach to the course. Because, in an Integrated course, a student covers two courses under one academic program.
The most common integrated law courses that students go for include
- A. L.L.B. -Bachelor of Arts and Law programs
- Com. L.L.B.-Bachelor of Commerce and Law Programs
- Sc. L.L.B. -B.Sc. and Law programs
Moreover, students can pursue Law programs (L.L.B.) through a postgraduate course and a student must be a graduate to become eligible to pursue the L.L.B degree. However, since the integrated law course includes a Bachelor’s degree course as well, the two can be combined.
In fact, Sharda University offers plenty of options for students who are interested in pursuing the integrated law course.
