Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws (B.A., LL. B. Honours)

Legal education is the education of individuals in the principles, practices and theory of law. It may be undertaken for several reasons, including to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for admission to legal practice in a particular jurisdiction, to provide a greater breadth of knowledge to those working in other professions such as politics or business, to provide current lawyers with advanced training or greater specialisation, or to update lawyers on recent developments in the law.

Early Western legal education emerged in Republican Rome. In England, legal education emerged in the late thirteenth century through apprenticeships. Formal degrees focused on the native common law emerged during 1800s. Legal Education in India could be traced from as early as the Vedic age, when it was essentially based on the concept of Dharma. A system of courts, following formal procedures, to adjudicate criminal and civil cases, came to be established with Mughal rule. The adoption of rules of evidence by Mughal Courts, introduced further complexities in administration and seeking of justice necessitating involvement of legal experts, who were addressed as Vakils. The Legal Practitioners Act of 1846 opened up the legal profession.

Law degrees in India are granted and conferred in terms of the Advocates Act, 1961, which is a law passed by the Parliament both on the aspect of legal education and also regulation of conduct of legal profession. Under the Act, the Bar Council of India is the supreme regulatory body to regulate the legal profession in India and also to ensure the compliance of the laws and maintenance of professional standards by the legal profession in the country. Traditionally the degrees that were conferred carried the title of LL.B. (Bachelor of Laws) or B.L. (Bachelor of Law). The eligibility requirement for these degrees was that the applicant already have a Bachelor's degree in any subject from a recognized institution. Now, Universities offer 5 year duration integrated degree with the title of B.A., LL.B. (Honours), B.B.A, LL.B. (Honours) etc.
