LLB (Hons.) program


The Program

The Department of Law and Human Rights offers two programs, LLB (Hons.) and LLM (Regular). Both LLB and LLM syllabuses have UGC approval. LLB (Hons.) is a four years degree. At present, for completion of the LLB degree, students have to complete 144 credits. For degree completion, undergraduate students must submit a dissertation to the Department and they have to pass the defense board. The defense board is constituted by both internal and external examiners. The degree offered by the department is also approved by the Bangladesh Bar Council.

In accordance with the direction of the University Grant Commission (UGC), the four years LL.B. (Hons) degree which is offered by Department is divided into eight (8) semesters and each semester contains six (6) courses amounting to eighteen (18) credits.



The curriculum is structure-based and there are no provisions of options for students in taking course loads in a semester. Courses are arranged in a pyramidal scheme from the base level to pivot with a view to creating ready graduates for practical fields. The curriculum contains some interdisciplinary courses which are closely related to legal professions and they focus only on the fundamental aspects of the disciplines not overweighing the core courses (five (5) interdisciplinary courses out of forty-eight (48) courses in total). In order to develop practical skills among graduates, courses of last semester (4th-year 2nd semester) are designed to include teaching and learning in practical environments such as moot court practice and dissertation.


Classes and Assessment

Apart from some courses in the last semester where classes are conducted through practical sessions, most of the classes are conducted through lectures and students work through a combination of lectures, seminar groups, and written assignments. Students receive instruction in the research and writing skills required and are given the opportunity to apply this skill as the course progresses. Assessment strategies are also explicitly mentioned in the Rules and Regulation part of the curriculum. It provides that the total performance of a student in a given course is based on a scheme of continuous assessment, which may be different for theoretical and sessional courses.

LLB (Hons.) program and curriculum

At present, the Department has two syllabi, an Old and a New one; where the New syllabus is an updated one and will replace the Old syllabus eventually when admitted students during the Old syllabus system will graduate. There was a provision for a "Trimester" syllabus, which is now defunct and not in use. The syllabi are given below. Click to download the pdf versions of the courses with brief descriptions.
