HELP: Indian Students Applying for LLM Program


b.ramyaa
Hey Everyone,

I am a Law Graduate from India. I already had a masters (MSc in Plant Biotechnology) and therefore did a three year law program instead of the standard 5 year B.A.LL.B. or B.Sc.LL.B. I have recently started worrying whether my three year course would be considered as a valid and complete Law Degree by the universities outside India.

For instance, B.Sc. programs are not regarded as a complete bachelor's degree when applying for a Masters outside India as it's a three year program instead of the 4 year program Bachelor Degrees normally are. So BSc students are generally advised to apply for a Masters abroad after completing their MSc or at least the first year of their MSc.

Does someone know if a similar standard applies to a law degree as well. Like does it have to be a certain duration (specifically 5 years for India) to be considered valid.

Any help/guidance in this direction would be highly appreciated.

It takes time. But it is the best way to get a correct answer. Especially now that universities have a certain 'autonomy' regarding admission requirements.

The three years LLB is definitely considered as a complete degree to apply for admissions in the US and UK. You're doing good. Cheers!
