liya sharan

Hi Jeshlin. For your query regarding LLB courses, you can appear for CLAT or LSAT, on the basis of which best institutes in Law are admitting students. If you are scoring well in those exams, you are eligible to get scholarships in the form of fee reduction. Delhi University, AMU, Lovely Professional University etc are some of the good institutes to pursue LLB. You can also appear for the entrance and eligibility tests of these institutes too to get admission and scholarships. Vibrant campus life and regular seminars and conferences are the significance of such good institutes. you can visit the websites for more information regarding LLB course.
