Law is the base of our constitution. To become a lawyer and to enter in the court activities and practice, the students have to acquire degrees in law. The courses in law are being offered by the various universities in India and in various academic levels. Traditionally, a student can pursue a Law (L.L.B.) program only as a PG course. Only Graduates are eligible to pursue the L.L.B. Integrated course differs from this traditional LLB course. In an integrated course, two courses are covered under one academic program like - B.A. L.L.B., B.Com. L.L.B., B.Sc. L.L.B. It is called an integrated course because two courses combined in a single course. This course can be pursued after completing 12th Standard Schooling because the course covers a Bachelor’s Degree course too. The students after completing integrated courses can pursue LL.M. (Master of Law course). Business-oriented courses such as M.B.A., M.B.L. (Master of Business Laws), etc.
