Absolutely. There are several ways of doing it:

3 Year LLB Programmes

A degree of law in India can be obtained in two ways: After 12th (5 Year BALLB (H) course) and after graduation (3 year LLB (H) courses). You can enroll yourself for 3 Year LLB courses at law colleges that offer the programme, like: Government Law College, Mumbai; Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi; Indian Law School, Pune; Delhi University, New Delhi and various other State Universities. You may enroll yourself in Evening Courses (Delhi University offers one) while working at your firm during the day. The course isn't that difficult for I know someone who worked during the day at law firms, to get a hands-on experience, while pursuing his 3 year course in the evening.

Once graduated, you are at par with any graduate of law and eligible to practice law.

Yes. In fact, there are certain specialties in patent law that require you to have an undergraduate degree in engineering or a related field.

However one cannot do it through distance education and should join a college.

Admission will be done on the basis of an entrance exam called CLAT.

There are two ways of getting law degree :

  • 5 years integrated course in law after 10+2.

  • 3 years integrated course in law after graduation in any field.

<h1>Now you have done the engineering degree, so you have to go for pursuing 3 years integrated course in law,</h1>

The syllabus for the entrance exam includes;

  • Logical Reasoning

*General Awareness

*Aptitude Test

*Communication skills.

Eligibility :

The eligibility criteria for LLB course after graduation are following:-

-The candidate must have completed graduation in any discipline from a recognized university.

-The duration for this LLB course is 3 years.

-There is no upper age-limit for admission. However a candidate must be at least 17 years of age on the date of application.

  • A graduation degree with 45% marks (40% for reserved category) is the basic qualification required.

All the best !!!
