LL.M. in India


simi76
Dear all

I am a Swiss lawyer holding a Swiss master degree in law (equivalent to LLM in India) of University of Zurich and practising as an advocate in Zurich, Switzerland.

Since I am very interested in spending a longer time in India and since an LL.M. degree from a common law english speaking country ist very good for Swiss CV, I am planning to enrol for an LL.M. program in India for summer 2009.

Can anybody give me some advice on the following questions? As it is very difficult for me to find enough information from far away, I would be very grateful for answers:

1. If I want to specialize on family law (which I already have back home), which universities in India are the ones with the best reputation for family law? I prefer north indian universities as i will live in Chandigarh.

2. If I want to do a correspondence course, which universities with a good reputation for LL.M. offer a distance education program?

3. Is there a university which combines question 1. and 2., i.e. is there a uni which is especially known for family law and which offers the LL.M. through distance education?

4. Is there any university which offers LL.M. programs do be done in 1 year only?

5. What kind of reputation do the following universities have regarding their LL.M. programs:

- Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra
- Punjab University, Chandigarh
- Punjabi University, Punjab

Please, please, if any of you have any information on those questions, please share with me so I can take my decision where to study what. I'd appreciate any help a lot!!

Would love to live and study in your wonderful country, where I spent 4 superb months last year...

Best regards

Hey Simi
First of all apologies on behalf of all Indians(lemme represent them without their express permission).
Well I am an Indian and from Punjab but studied law at Chandigarh.
As to your question regarding family law specialization, the best would be National law School, Bangalore.
However since you prefer nothern part, I would say Punjab University is the best and its in Chandigarh(well I studied there) but I am saying it without any bias.
However it does not offer a long distance program and its a 2 year program. LL.M in India is of 2 year duration.
I think Kurukshetra University offers long disatnce program in LL.M. However with all due respects, I would not suggest that University. As an Indian I should be giving you an honest advice.
There are other very good Universities but those are primarily in southern India. Delhi University is also good but again there is no long distance program.
Hope I have been able to answer your query. Please feel free to ask for any other information.
Good Luck

Dear Simone,

Welcome to India!

So you have already received a lot of correct guidance from my countrymen on LL.M. correspondence in India!

Here are a few thoughts of another simple & ordinary Indian. I am 29, work as an inhouse IPR counsel for one big brand in India, but I am not highly qualified. After LL.B. from University of Delhi, I took admission in LL.M. correspondence of Kukurshetra University. It is undoubtedly not bad, considering that it is correspondence. They require mandatory attendence in 14 days-Personal Contact Programs (PCPs) conducted in February for both first year and second year students. Exams are conducted once in one year (with an option to reapper in October/ November).

You also need to submit a dissertation in second year for which you proactively should find out a professor of law as a supervisor. I discontinued after first year due to my professional commitments, and now regretting why I discontinued:( They don't offer family law as a subject.

However, a better option for you would be correspondence LL.M. from the ICFAI University, Tripura. It has very high quality course material, the fees is of course little higher than KU, but it has much better PCPs and course content. Hope that serves your needs. For other queries, please mail to benzspares@gmail.com.

Dear Simone.. I wont recommend you Punjab universities. They are good for nothing. The only good university for law in North India is Delhi University... and may be NLU, Jodhpur (Rajasthan). If you are willing to move to South India, you will get better universities, the best being NLSIU, Bangalore
(there is no competition to that). Another good university in South is NALSAR, Hyderabad. All the best with your applications.

Dear Nidhi,

Being a full time corporate lawyer, one thing is sure that you cannot afford to do a full time course. I think if you are interested in Corporate laws, dont opt for any "other" course. You should enrol for a part time (distance education) M.B.L. Degree course from NLSIU, Bangalore. The duration is 2 years. Though I must tell you that its no cake walk getting through M.B.L. (Masters in Business Laws). You will have to put in a great deal of effort and great means actually great. And if you get it, nothing like that. Believe me!!!

All the best

Sahil, Thank you for your response. Yes, definitely a part time course is the only option for me. As per my recent exchange of e-mails from the NLSUI regarding admission in MBL, I understood that their admission criteria is not tough, just pass percentage isnt it? It seems you have attempted this course or may be have been closely associated with someone pursuing the course. Could you please explain why the course needs great effort? Is it the agssignments/ projects? Or something else? Can you please also clarify why you rate this as the course? Do you have an idea regarding the market recognition of the course? Say for example for the law firms? Looking forward to your response. Thanks in advance. Best regards, Nidhi

Nidhi you are right in saying that its not the admission that is tough it is the pass percentage. And yes, its the projects and assignments. You are not allowed to sit for the exams until you complete and submit the assignments before a particular date prior to their exams. You will certainly have to devote your time and energy to it. Its unlike normal diploma courses. I have not referred to it as "the course". I said dont do just "any other course". Rather do MBL. Its market value is, I'll say, very good and in any case, it is beileved that if you have completed a course like MBL from NLS, you got to be knowing something and having an edge above the others.

hey nidhi,
though masters in bsiness laws is a decent option, but as according to some students from NLS (who happen to be rather good friends), the degree is not of much help, to be honest correspondence courses do not command very high salaries in india...the only good correspondence courses that are worth investing one's time and money are CA, CS or ICWA...and of these 3 a course programme in CS would be most complementary to a qualified lawyer. though in terms of respect and the salaries they command, all are equal, moreso an MBL would only limit your knowledge to a few specific domain, while (donno mch abt ICWA) ca and cs can open a plethora of career options before you..

There are various LLM courses available in North India. The best are the ones provided by Delhi University and Punjab University (Chandigarh) becuase they are the eldest. The admission is through entrance exams, but it is quite difficult to get in because of the competition. Easier options are Kurukshetra University, Punjabi University and GNDU. One has to bear in mind that LLMs in India are 2 years and incorporate both taught and research agendas. However, they are not as specialised as LLMs in UK and USA. Though there are possibilities of specialising in certain sphere like international law (Delhi University and Punjabi University are best in this), the level of speciality is only competitive and not great.

Thank you so much for replying. I'm still kind of confused about the process of getting in. The entrance exam that I have to is that called LSAT because thats what we have to take here. Also, you mentioned the program is only for 2 years, I am not sure if that would work if I just want to complete my studies in India and come over to the states and take the board exam. Is that how it works?
