Please tell me the names of reputed universities/colleges that offer 3 year LLB program whose application process is still open for 2020. Please help, I want to pursue LLB this year itself, my graduation results are yet to be announced. I'm in Calcutta University, everything got delayed due to Covid
I am assuming that this question came up because you did not appear for any exams to get admission into 3 year law. This will be a personal opinion based answer so you are free to not pay any heed to it and keep your search going but hear this out:
These are the most popular exams for 3 year LL.B in India:
- CLAT (for admission into top NLUs and other private universities that accept clat scores)
- DU LLB ( one of the best 3 year LL.B courses are offered in DU colleges)
- LSAT India ( for Jindal Law school)
- SLAT for Symbiosis colleges (in pune, hyderabad, noida, nagpur)
- BHU UET ( also great, I have been to BHU and talked to their 3 year students - they say it's one of the best as far as faculty and academics is concerned)
- MH CET (for GLC Mumbai and other colleges in Maharashtra)
Now there are some other private exams that I have deliberately chosen not to include here because of 2 reasons - most of the decent private universities accept CLAT scores which is already over for this year and other universities that conduct their own exams are either over too or those that remain are not worth your time and money at all.
If you have made up your mind to go for a 3 year LL.B course then do not rush in and join any random college this late in the year. I would advise against it and propose that you wait for 7-8 more months for the exams in 2021 because:
- Law is already a very crowded field with many universities sprouting in India that lack every basic aspect of a good law school ( trust me, you cannot compare the premier law schools that I mentioned above with any random university in terms of opportunities, placements, exposure and more)
- If your circumstances are such that you absolutely have to get admission this year for some reason then I'd tell you that I could not find any open admission links to law schools online - which means that those that are actually open and available for admission without writing any exams are not worth it at all.
- your future self will thank you for choosing to wait a while and writing competitive exams if you want to pursue Law as a career, it does not mean that you won't or can't have a great career if you don't join those colleges but it does get easier to launch yourself ahead especially if you are aiming for a corporate law career.
This is a strongly opinionated answer so take it with a grain of salt. the decisions are up to you. Best of luck! do comment or post again if you have any more queries.
