Scope of Pursuing BBA LLB
The field of Law is not a discrete and stand-alone body of knowledge, and the practice of law also cannot be divorced from the practice of other disciplines. Law affects and is affected by other disciplines and other professions in many ways. BBA LLB is a one such unique and niche interdisciplinary program that has emerged in the last decade in response to fast-changing trends of the industry. It provides an in-depth knowledge of commerce and business management, with intricate details of law and governance. Students gain valuable insights into both domains, viz management of business functions, including finance, marketing, human resource management, international business, and the legal policy & framework, including corporate laws in the fields of banking, investment, corporate governance, insurance, competition and acquisitions & mergers, etc, thereby facilitating a truly interdisciplinary approach to learning law.

The scope of BBA LLB keeps expanding, if the students keep themselves abreast with latest developments in the legal and management discipline, take up short-term certification courses and focus on good-quality work experience in the areas of their interest, without bothering too much about monetary returns in the initial phase. The career holds a rewarding future, for those who are hard-working, perseverant, resilient and stay committed.
So, for all those students, who are already pursuing it….. all the very best… You are on the right track!
Skills you learn while pursuing BBA LLB
The course develops an analytical mind-set, critical analysis, lateral thinking, research, public speaking, problem-solving and decision-making skills of the students, while exhibiting inter-relationship between management and law. The program focuses on creating a learning environment that fosters students’ managerial and entrepreneurial skills, a sense of global and social responsibility, besides in-depth know-how and wherewithal to provide solutions to legal problems using intellectual autonomy. The program gives the students the tools, skills and practical experience to successfully manage, lead and communicate in today’s increasingly competitive and interconnected world.
Prepares you for both management and law sector
For a student, doing such a program is always a win-win proposition. The program enables you to apply your knowledge and skills in either management disciplines or in law domain, or in both, thereby making the candidate much more valuable to corporate houses and businesses. Infact, most companies prefer those with this dual degree, rather than a plain vanilla LLB. Secondly, the program also helps you to keep all your potential career options intact till the very end, and choose your areas of expertise in either of the sectors to grow in your career. Thirdly, study of management, which covers aspects like managing self and others, diagnosing the environment, improving interpersonal skills, demonstrating authentic and ethical leadership, winning clients and bagging big deals, etc, helps one to become more successful as a lawyer as well.
