Studying LLB in UK
« on: March 18, 2016, 09:05:21 AM »
Hello,

I'm a student in 12th grade , going to study Law in UK. I have already been admitted to a university which is recognized by Bar Council of India. However I'm really very confused how to become eligible to work in India once I complete my 3 year LLB in UK. I have been getting mixed responses from everyone.

Could someone please provide me proper answer? Many say that I need to study for 2 years more to become eligible to practice in India. Would training under senior advocate for 2 years after 3 year LLB would work?

Regards.

Hi
As per bar council of india rules, you should do a five year course in law after your 12th or should do a three year law course after your degree.
please pursue the enclosed link for more clarity:

Thanks for your reply.

However LLB in UK is for 3 years. On the rules of Bar Council of India, one has to do LPC/BPTC for a year immediately afer 3 years of LLB and then training contract for at least 2 years in order to become eligible to practice in India. The problem is that it's very hard to get a Training contract in UK.

Could a 3 year LLB in UK and then interning under a senior advocate in India for 2 years make me eligible to work in India?

Hi
To my knowledge, we do not have LPC /BPC in india
training under senior advocate for 2 years after 3 year LLB will not work as there is no clear guideline from BCI on this.

Thankyou for your reply again. According to Bar Council of India, the rules which were mentioned on the foreign list are follows -

1)'(ii) The following conditions are applicable for Universities which are marked with “*” in the list given under United
Kingdom.
(a) Three years’ LLB degree only if taken after a three years’ bachelor degree course in any subject (that is after obtaining BA / BSc
/BCom /BBA); or
(b) Three Years’ LL.B. course followed immediately by 1 year whole time LPC/BVC and followed by a contract of service with a Law
Firm for two years to be entitled to be enrolled as a solicitor or take pupilage for a year in a Chamber of a qualified Barrister to
be a Master, or
(c) Four Years’ of LLB jointly with another subject like Finance, Accounts, Management or a Language to be immediately followed
by one year full time LPC/BVC from a College of Inns of courts/ Solicitors Society or a Master degree in Law. "

From these rules (the second condition applies to me), if one does LPC/BPTC in UK and then 2 years of training contract in UK, one could be eligible to practice in India. However what I'm confused about is that it's hard to get training contract in UK. What I have to do if I didn't secure a training contract in UK?

Hi
The circular i forwarded is self explanatory.
you need to analyse the conditions mentioned in the circular.
If you do not get a training/ service contract after completion of LPC, it means your effort goes waste.
So, you need to think of other options of pursuing LLB.

Our national law schools are one amongst the best in the world and if you have noticed this year leading law firms such as Amarchand, JSagar, Trilegal  have offered a salary in the range of Rs15Lakhs per annum in these campuses which is really a good money for a starter.

Corporates like Amazon, JP Morgan, Citi bank have offered about Rs20 Lakhs per annum as salary with overseas stint as well.

So the ball is now in your court.
thanks

Does it mean that if I don't get training contract after completing my LPC, I would never ever become eligible to work in India?
I'm pretty sure there must be alternative for those students who don't get training contract after LLB in UK.
