What is an Integrated Law Course?
An integrated course, offered by many eminent universities in India, aims to get lawyers ‘industry-ready’. The course provides two degrees to the student, one of which is law and the other is chosen by the student.
When studying for an integrated law course, a student gets two traditional degrees. While the law course is all about pursuing the LLB degree from a Law School, the integrated degree is a modern approach to the course. In an Integrated course, a student covers two courses under one academic program.
The most common integrated law courses that students go for include:
- B.A. L.L.B. -Bachelor of Arts and Law programs
- B.Com. L.L.B. -Bachelor of Commerce and Law Programs
- B.Sc. L.L.B. -B.Sc. and Law programs
Law programs (L.L.B.) can only be pursued through a post graduate course and a student must be a graduate to become eligible to pursue the L.L.B degree. However, since the integrated law course includes a Bachelor’s degree course as well, the two can be combined.
Sharda University offers plenty of options for students who are interested in pursuing the integrated law course.
Benefits of Pursuing the Course

- While you study for one degree, you get two degrees in your hand.
- Career options are much more for students who have pursued the integrated course as compared to the other students.
- Students save a year by undertaking the integrated B.A. LLB course as a study option. The students can invest the time saved for pursuing some other degree.
