LL.B. (Hons.) Program

This is a Four Year Program that essentially leads to the legal profession. To be eligible for admission in the program, the candidate must have a minimum of GPA 2.50 individually in both SSC and HSC. Alternatively, if the candidate fails to achieve the minimum GPA of 2.50 in either SSC or HSC, then he must have a total GPA of 6.00.

A successful completion of the course will make you one of the finest lawyers. However, we will ensure that more than this happens and for that, the curriculum must be stimulating, participative and modern. Keeping that in mind, the syllabus of the LL.B. (Hons.)
