About JGLS BA Legal Studies
Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) in Legal studies is a three-year undergraduate degree programme offered by the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU). This UG programme, leading to a Bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies is separate and independent from the existing BA LL.B. (Hons.) and BBA LL.B. (Hons.) programmes offered by JGLS. The programme aims to prepare students to pursue careers in law and allied legal services and for further studies in law or in liberal disciplines.
This degree will not enable its holder to enrol as an advocate to practice law. However, the degree offers numerous employment opportunities in law-related and allied fields e.g., paralegals, legal assistants, and policy professionals. In addition, the programme qualifies its graduates to pursue a three year LL.B. programme, certain Master’s programmes in law that do not require a Bachelor’s degree in law (e.g., M.B.L. degree of certain universities), PostGraduate diploma in law, and all other PG programmes.
The programme also serves as a springboard for pursuing further studies in law outside India, such as Juris Doctor programmes in the United States. In that sense, BA (Hons) in Legal Studies is like any other UG programme but it is particularly meant for students who have a stronger inclination to pursue the study of law but may not be willing to enrol in a full-fledged law programme in India
Course Fee (Yearly)
Rs. 3.5 Lacs
