The course can be a 3-year LLB or a 5-year integrated Degree. Both these are Bachelor’s degrees. But a 3-year degree is only for those who already have an undergraduate degree. If you are in 10+2, you can apply for a 5-year integrated degree. In the 5-year pattern, after completing some specified courses, you will be awarded a BA or BSc Degree at the end of 3 years. You will get an LLB Degree only after completing all the five years of the course.
2. Take the LSAT (you can do this before you complete college so that you can apply to law school in a timely manner)
3. Apply to Law School
4. Law School is 3 years (unless you attend a night program and stretch it out)

It depends the country, usually in US, most states and jurisdictions require lawyers to complete a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA). ABA accreditation signifies that the law school—particularly its curricula and faculty—meets certain standards. A bachelor’s degree is required for entry into most law schools, and courses in English, public speaking, government, history, economics, and mathematics are useful.
Almost all law schools, particularly those approved by the ABA, require applicants to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). This test measures applicants’ aptitude for the study of law.
On the other hand, in México you only need to pass a test called CENEVAL which is similar to he LSAT, in some schools they also asked you to present a thesis and an oral exam related to that, after this you receive your degree as lawyer and then you have options to do a master's or doctorate.
Hope this could help you to understand better.
