B.A. LL.B. (Hons.)

Course Structure

The B.A. LL.B. (Hons) Curriculum at JGLS consists of compulsory and elective courses of maximum one semester.

The compulsory courses are designed to ensure that every student gains  sufficient grounding in the fundamental branches of the law, as well as satisfy 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 electives worth 1 to 4 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 B.A. LL.B. (Hons) degree, students must be awarded no less than 208 credits in total, distributed as follows:

  • Two English language courses, worth 8 credits in aggregate
  • At least 12 compulsory courses in the Arts and Humanities subjects, worth 48 credits in aggregate;
  • At least 20 compulsory courses in law, worth 80 credits in aggregate;
  • At least 14 elective courses (including 8 courses undertaken in pursuance of an honours degree), worth 56 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 208 credits required to be awarded a B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) degree.
