Bengaluru’s National Law School of India University (NLSIU) has launched a three-year LLB programme. Unlike the LLM, which is only open to law graduates with a bachelor’s degree, the three-year LLB will be open to graduates from any subject.
The programme was inaugurated by NLSIU Vice Chancellor Sudhir Krishnaswamy during the varsity’s 29th Annual Convocation. “The institution was founded in 1988 on the back of an audacious curricular experiment – the five-year integrated B.A. LL.B (Hons) programme,” he remarked. Three decades later, a new three-year multidisciplinary LLB programme based on experiential learning is being launched.”
Students will be able to apply for the three-year multidisciplinary course starting next year, with sessions beginning in 2022. The university has yet to provide full admissions and curriculum standards.
The university has received all of the essential regulatory clearances from the regulatory authorities and governing organisations in order to begin this programme. “The inaugural cohort will begin their education in July 2022, and will help re-energise and change postgraduate legal education in India in the coming years,” he added.
Three-year LLB degree programmes are designed for students who have already finished an undergraduate degree in any field and wish to continue law specialisation studies. Apart from the one-year LLM (Masters) programme and other distance education courses, the institute currently provides a five-year integrated BA.LLB (Hons) course.
