The University of Delhi has introduced the two five-year law courses, BA LLB (Hons) and BBA LLB (Hons), starting from the academic year 2023-24. The DU LLB application form 2023 for admission to these courses will be hosted soon on the official website, du.ac.in.
On July 26, the Bar Council of India (BCI) granted its approval of 60 seats for BA LLB (Hons) and 60 seats for BBA LLB (Hons).
The admission to LLB courses offered by the Delhi University will be based on the merit in Common Law Admission Test (CLAT UG 2023) result, the university said.
“The classes for BA LLB (Hons) and BBA LLB (Hons) courses will be held at faculty of law, Kanad Bhawan, north campus, University of Delhi,” the official statement read. The university established the Department of Law under the Faculty of Law in 1924.
The DU faculty of law used to offer a three-year LLB, LLM (full-time as well as part-time) and a PhD in Law. The classes to the additional two law courses will begin from this academic year.
Delhi University vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh had constituted a Workload Assessment Committee to examine the implementation of the 5-year integrated law courses.
The committee had suggested a new centre to be constituted which will be part of the Faculty of Law. “However, for the purpose of teaching in Arts and BBA/Commerce components of the programmes, necessary arrangements be made by the university depending upon the operational requirement,” the committee has suggested.
