A warm welcome to our readers. We at provide the budding minds with ample information. This article is basically for all the students interested in joining the line of the judiciary. Law is one such thing that has to be followed by everyone once passed. This makes judiciary an evergreen job. The Indian judiciary is never going to come to an end because we live in a democratic country. People have the right to say whatever they wish to while some others won’t always agree with what one says. They will have different and conflicting views. Hence, to avoid conflicts and to bring harmony, we have the law. 

First of all, it is very important to understand what distance education literally means. This means that while attaining education the student is not necessarily present physically at school or college. They just have to go to the college to gives exams as scheduled by the University. Now, the question arises as to what is the benefit of distance education? Distance education is beneficial when one is already occupied with his job and cannot take out time to attend classes but also at the same time has to obtain a degree. This will help the person gain multiple benefits. One, of devoting time to the job and second, of doing a degree. It is also beneficial for you because it lets you set your own pace of study. People can decide as to when and where they wish to study. There is no set obligation for the person. It is completely upon them as to how they want to pursue and manage their time.

Distance Education and Law.

Distance education and law do not go hand in hand. If you have just cleared 12th, I would suggest, not to go for a distance education program. There is a reason to it. You do law so that you can practice after that on your own. But there is a fact you need to consider. Bar Council of India does not recognize the degree attained from distance education and does not consider it valid. This deprives you of practicing law in the court.  Therefore, if you wish to become a successful lawyer later, Distance education is not a genuine idea. Make your decision very wisely before selecting your course and your mode of attaining education.

There are many universities which offer LLB from distance education. Below are mentioned some such universities you can have a look upon.
