Thomas Hobbes, a Political Scientist had once opined:
“It is not wisdom but authority that makes a Law”.
As strong as his words can be, the particular phrase brings out the essence of Law and studies of Law in our everyday life. Courses in Law have been popular amongst people in India for a long time. In a fast paced world, the need for traditional law as well as courses which address certain specific demands of the changing times are indeed very important to be incorporated and learnt about.
Traditionally there are two ways to enter into Law Schools in India. One is a 5 year B.A.L.L.B course which gives you a comprehensive understanding of every facet of Law, giving you an opportunity and time to choose your choice of area, another is a 3 year L.L.B course, which can be pursued after graduation. A Masters course in Law, called L.L.M (Master In Law) can also be pursued after your graduation, which will be a specialized course depending on the choice of area that the candidate wishes to choose. A Masters degree in Law (L.L.M) is an internationally recognized postgraduate degree, which is usually obtained by completing a one-year full time program. After graduation, Law students look forward to a L.L.M degree to gain expertise in a specialized field of Law, for example, corporate Law or International Law. Now with the changing demands of the society and the upbeat time through which Law firms function, a simple 5 year B.A.L.L.B degree doesn’t suffice. Many Law firms prefer candidates who carry a L.L.M degree as it directs the firms about their specialization field, thus making them suitable candidates to be hired under particular circumstances.

We are proud to announce our new venture, where we have entered into a MoU with Buckingham University for a specific L.L.M course in International and Commercial Law with the University. The University has been critically acclaimed by students for its teaching excellence and student satisfaction. The Law Faculty especially is well trained in the field and have extensive knowledge about the subjects offered, as they have their faculty from various backgrounds. L.L.M in International and Commercial Law offers students an exposure to the curriculum of Buckingham University, itself in our campus, which would help students develop industrial knowledge of the same. A program which has been attracting students from a wide variety of backgrounds to Buckingham University is now accessible to students at a nominal fees, which will help you up your ante not only from an academic perspective but helps the students gain the essential element of being an effective lawyer.After the completion of the course, a budding lawyer can be expected to understand the chosen area thoroughly, have the confidence in analysing complex case-laws, with an acquired ability to make convincing arguments orally as well as a written one. Another important element of the course, is to take a co-operative approach towards problem-solving, a trait which was known to be inherent in a lawyer, but in a fast paced world like ours, it is a trait which needs to be acquired to make a mark as a good lawyer. Let's look at legal education with a twist, as we explore the facets in this course and bring out the best in you!
