A dual degree or integrated course is more preferred than any regular course of study. One of the biggest reasons for this is that, after successful completion of the course candidate gets two degrees instead of one single degree!
Let us now bring to centre stage the comaprision of B.A LL.B. and BBA LL.B.
Really speaking, it depends on the candidate’s choice or what he/she wants to do after completing his/her studies. As a matter of fact, both B.A. LL.B. and BBA LL.B. are five-year integrated law courses with the eligibility of 10+2 with any subject with minimum 50% marks.
In B.A. LL.B., a student gets to study subjects like History, Sociology, Economics and Political Science apart from Law. On the other hand, in BBA LL.B., the subjects like Business Environment & Ethical Practices, Human Resource Management and Strategic Management are taught besides Law.
Again, in BBA LL.B., the candidates get specialized knowledge about corporate law, acquisitions and mergers while in BA LL.B., Arts (Humanities) subjects are covered along with law.
Here it may be relevant to note that BBA LL.B. is relatively a new concept. If you wish to work as a Corporate Lawyer, then you should opt for BBA LL.B. as it will help you understand Corporate Laws and Regulatory Affairs. You will verily gain valuable insights in both the business functions like human resource management, marketing, finance, international business, corporate laws in the fields of banking, investment, corporate governance, insurance, competition and acquisitions & mergers.
However, if you wish to enter into court practice or take up judiciary as a career option then BA LL.B. should be prefered as the course covers lot many important subjects of humanities which play a significant role in real courtroom practice and in cracking competitive examination of Judiciary.
While all National Law Universities accept CLAT scores to admit students to their five-year LL.B. programmes every year, aspiring law students can also explore top private law colleges like Asian Law College (ALC) in Noida which offer these programs along with inhouse Judicial Coaching assistance to its law students.
