LLB Law Degree at UJ


LLB Law Degree at UJ: The LLB degree is the minimum academic qualification for practicing law in South Africa. To become an attorney or advocate you need an LLB degree. The LLB degree will equip students with both practical and theoretical skills to enter the legal profession. This is a focused degree, with an emphasis on legal subjects and lays a solid foundation for a career and future in law.
