The Bachelor of Laws or better known as LLB is an undergraduate level course that awards you with a bachelor degree on successful completion of it. The law education has its roots in England. Earlier, law students had to study both common law and civil law.

However, in some other countries, to get admission into common LLB requires you to have passed the graduation first. In Scotland, LLB is also known as, GDL, a one-year diploma course offered after graduation. Rules and systems differ with countries. In India, law has always been offered in a three year degree course mode known as, B.L (Bachelor of Law).

They further need to assist a senior lawyer or work as trainees for some time, generally a year and a half before they could get their license to practice as a solicitor.
LL.B- Bachelor of Laws: it is generally a five year degree program in law which requires students to pass out their higher secondary or 10+2 level exam and succeed in the entrance test held for getting through legal studies.
