Business Law with Engineering Background


My name is Fazil and i've completed my Engineering in Computer Science. I want to pursue Corporate Law at National Law School, Bangalore, which provides a Masters degree in Business Law(M.B.L.). This is a correspondence course. 

So my quetion is:

1. Do i need to have Law backround for this course to have a weightage on my Resume?

2. What is the scope if I pursue this career path considering my Engg background?


I need to submit the application for the course before June 31st 2011.. So please help me...

Thanks in advance....

                    u have completed ur engineering in computer science , but as i know for LL.M, you should have LL.B. dgree . other  wise u cant do LL.M. unless and untill u don't have LL.B. dgree.


It would be proper for your to refer the website of the National Law University or  their Admission Bulletin to find out as to what are the minimum eligibility requirement for admission to the course please.

Hey guys,

 I went through the website and it says:

6.Is MBL equivalent to LL.M. ?
No, Degreewise it is not but contentwise it is more than LL.M. LL.M. has a narrow specialisation when compared with MBL. ALL Laws required to be known by a business law consultant / Advisor / Officer, are included in the curriculum. The course is theoretical as well as practical oriented. 


8.What is the criteria for selecting admission to MBL ? 
Any graduate in any discipline is eligible to join. At present no entrance test is prescribed. But it is likely
 to be introduced soon.

The Link to the page is :


So what do you guys think??


Dear Friend,


Answers to your querries are already obtained by your from the website.  In short, no legal background is imperative to do their course.


Best wishes,

Hello Mr.Fazail,


I am also a Mechanical Engineer and presently I am pursuing Master Degree in Corporate Laws through Distance Education. With the degree of MCL, a whole new area opens up for me otherwise I am just a mechanical engineer.

You are a Computer Engineer and want to do LLM or Masters Degree in Law Subjects. My advice to you is DONT THINK.GO AHEAD. However, for LLM Degree, you need to be an LLB first. But for Masters Degree in Corporate Laws, WTO, International Trade, International Taxation etc. any Graduate Degree would do.

With your Computer Science background, the best area for you is WTO, International Trade and International Taxation. But mind it, studying law is different from studying Engineering/Science. You have to study a lot, remember many things like Sections, Regulations etc. to be a real professional.

So my advice is GO AHEAD.
