Is BBA LL.B necessary for becoming Corporate Lawyer?

By Manvee

Is BBA LL.B must for becoming a Corporate Lawyer? The answer is No, BBA LL.B is not mandatory for becoming a Corporate Lawyer. There is myth among the law aspirants and most of the law students that only those students who pursue BBA LL.B can become a successful corporate lawyer. But the reality is that for becoming a successful corporate lawyer one needs to have a thorough understanding of Corporate law, Company law and Business Laws along with Basics Accountancy. Students with B.A/B.Sc./B.Com/BLS/BSW LL.B or 3 years LL.B can easily get into Corporate Law if they have thorough understanding of Corporate Laws and have done ample amount of corporate internship during their LL.B program.

If it was true that for becoming a Corporate lawyer BBA LL.B is must then NLSIU Bangalore, NALSAR Hyderabad and NUJS Kolkata never had highest Corporate placement in India and there is no BBA LL.B course in these top 3 National Law Universities of our country. The only thing matters is the interest and knowledge of the student towards the Corporate Law. There is no doubt that Corporate Lawyers get handsome amount of salary but the amount of hardwork needed to get that position only few people know about that.

So at last I want to conclude that, If you want to become a successful Corporate Lawyer the amount of hardwork you will put during you law school days the more you will be near to get succeed. Internships are must in the area of your interest. Law Firms are more inclined toward the skilled law graduates rather than than those students of the batch who don’t possess such necessary skills. Its always advisable to be in top 10% of your batch for consecutive 5 years/3 years of your LL.B program to land in your dream corporate law job.
