Difference between BA LLB and LLB


Although BA LLB and LLB are Law programs, the area of study and the scope of these courses vary to a larger extent. The Bar Council of India is the body that approves both the programs in India. BA LLB is a 5 year integrated program that amalgamates Arts subjects along with the Law curriculum. On the other hand, LLB is an undergraduate program that deals with the study of the law principles, legal system, and constitutional amendments and so on.

BA LLB Course and Career Opportunities

Many law institutes across the world offer the BA LLB Course. Intermediates in any discipline can pursue the program. Candidates must study the Bachelors’ program from a recognized University. Then only they can become a certified lawyer or can go for higher studies in institutes of repute. The BA LLB Course curriculum comprises theory and practical sessions. In addition to the arts and law subjects, BA LLB students may have to undergo research projects and training sessions that may include court attendance. These professionals are actually gaining a dual degree that is Bachelors’ in Arts and Law within a period of 5 years. They can either work in the legal system or look out for career in Arts streams. Most of them work as legal counselors for firms, organizations and families.

Bachelor of Law is a graduation program, which has ample scope. Candidates who have finished their 12th in any disciplines can pursue the 5-year graduation course.
