*Please note: "three year LLB in Law" refers to the three-year LLB in Law ONLY which carries the UCAS code M100. It does not include our three year mixed LLB Law degrees which contain another discipline in the title (e.g. LLB Law with Business Studies, LLB Law with Accountancy, etc). These mixed degrees are NOT recognised for professional purposes by the Bar Council of India.
