Good that as an aspiring CA, you want to learn law. It will be very useful to you in your career.
Bachelor of General Law degree course is available by distance education, of Annamalai university. Some others like Alagappa, Manonmaniyam Sundaranar, Madurai Kamara etc also have some diploma courses of particular branch of law, as does IGNOU.
The said degree will not entitle one to practice as advocate since Bar Council regulations prescribe three year degree and three year regular law course or five year integrated regular law couse as eligibility for enrolment. However, if you go for employment, this degree will be of value. I think after becoming CA you are eligible to pursue LLM couse of National Law School of India University. This will also be for enrichment of your knowledge and for employment purposes.
