Law

With the globe becoming a global community, "student mobility" is becoming commonplace. However, mobility is skewed toward western destinations, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, and the United States. When it comes to law, "learn law abroad" is capturing the attention of Indian students, who have traditionally left the country to pursue disciplines such as management, STEM courses, medical, and engineering. Foreign colleges, such as Harvard and Cambridge, have changed the equation by recruiting young Indian minds to study law overseas, thanks to cutting-edge technology, top-notch lecturers, and international exposure. We LAKSHYA OVERSEAS look at the scope of legal study abroad programs, the application process, and other related topics in this article so that the candidate can make an informed career choice.

STRUCTURE OF A LAW PROGRAM

In the United States and Canada, you must have a bachelor's degree before pursuing a postgraduate degree in law at the Juris Doctor (J.D) level.
In the United States, a bachelor's degree in law takes three years to accomplish, which is the same as a liberal arts degree.
Following a bachelor's degree, a law master's degree will require an additional year to complete. In the United States, however, studying for a J.D. can take up to three years.
Many universities now offer international law studies at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as country-specific programs. You can specialize in various areas or forms of law at any level of study.
