OPJS University offers the 3-year Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) Program since its year of inception in 2015. The Program is designed in keeping with the latest Bar Council of India rules and the University Grants Commission prescriptions and aims at fostering a culture of scholarship and academic excellence amongst the students.


Eligibility: Bachelor’s degree in any subject with not less than 45% aggregate marks.

Credit Structure

The LLB Curriculum at OPJS University consists of compulsory and elective courses of maximum one semester’s strength. The compulsory courses are designed to ensure that every student gains a sufficient grounding in the fundamental branches of the law, as well as satisfying applicable requirements for admission to practice; the elective courses provide an opportunity to develop particular interests and to deepen understanding.

Each full semester course is worth 4 credits (with the exception of electives worth 4 to 1 credits), with 40 credits per year being the minimum full-time load adopted by the University. The normal full-time load in each semester is therefore 20 credits. Students may choose to take on a higher load subject to the prior consent of the Office of Academic Affairs. In no event shall the load for any semester be in excess of 28 credits.

In order to be awarded a Bachelor of Laws degree, students must be awarded no less than 120 credits in total, distributed as follows:

  • At least 20 compulsory courses (named below), worth 80 credits in aggregate
  • 6 elective courses, worth 24 credits in aggregate;
  • 4 Compulsory Clinical Courses, worth 16 credits in aggregate.

Students may be awarded credits for undertaking co-curricular activities which allow them to develop legal reasoning skills and enhance their understanding of the law. Credits earned on account of permissible co-curricular activity will count towards the total 120 credits required to be awarded a LLB degree.

Course Electives

Students are offered a number of elective courses from their third year of study. These courses are often interdisciplinary, involving elements of law as well as other disciplines in social science and management. Successful completion of electives will lead to the awarding of credits, which are ascertained per elective, based on the number of instructional hours. For example, a three credit course will have at least three hours of classroom lectures per week and one or more hours of tutorial instruction per week.

Further, a number of elective courses at the various schools of the University are open for cross-registration.
