Hi ,
to be allowed to practise law in South Africa you will have to complete a south african LLB degree.Alternatively, you can submit your educational credentials to the Director General of the Ministry of Justice so that an evaluation can be done by a panel on whether to exempt you from having to complete a South African law degree.The outcome of the panel will most probably be that you complete additional modules in South African law at a South African university.If you comply with those directives you will ultimately be admitted as a lawyer.It might seem like an long and complicated process, but it can be done. Goodluck

My pleasure. The other requirement I forgot to mention is that you must obtain citizenship in South Africa or,alternatively, be admitted to the status of permanent residence and be ordinarily resident in the country. The legal profession in South Africa is split between attorneys and advocates.So you will have to choose which route to follow.If you have any further questions don't be afraid to ask.

Hi,
There is no university which offers an LLB degree of less than four years duration.However, if an applicant holds a bachelor's degree in a discipline other than law, they can complete the LLB degree in two years' or three years' time.

In your case you will have a law degree from India.What I can do for you is that I can inquire from a few universities on whether an applicant with a foreign law degree can be allowed to complete a South African LLB degree in two or three years time.Currently universities around the country are closed for the festive season.So, I will make my inquiry as soon as they re-open.
