The Bachelor of Laws is intended to be completed in three years full-time, or on a part time basis; in either case the degree must normally be completed within ten years from the start of study (including any periods of leave or suspension). Each year of study is divided into two semesters which have fifteen weeks of study each. Two additional weeks are set aside for revisions and examination.

The LLB Curriculum at JGLS consists of compulsory and elective courses of maximum one semester’s strength. The compulsory courses are designed to ensure that every student gains a sufficient grounding in the fundamental branches of the law, as well as satisfying applicable requirements for admission to practice; the elective courses provide an opportunity to develop particular interests and to deepen understanding.

Each full semester course is worth 4 credits (with the exception of elective courses worth 4 to 1 credits), with 40 credits per year being the minimum full-time load adopted by the University. The normal full-time load in each semester is therefore 20 credits. Students may choose to take on a higher load subject to the prior consent of the Office of Academic Affairs. In no event shall the load for any semester be in excess of 28 credits.

In order to be awarded a Bachelor of Laws degree, students must be awarded no less than 120 credits in total, distributed as follows:

Atleast 20 compulsory courses (named below), worth 80 credits in aggregate. 6 elective courses, worth 24 credits in aggregate. 4 Compulsory Clinical Courses, worth 16 credits in aggregate.

Students may be awarded credits for undertaking co-curricular activities which allow them to develop legal reasoning skills and enhance their understanding of the law. Credits earned on account of permissible co-curricular activity will count towards the total 120 credits required to be awarded a LLB degree.
