Papeya Dubey Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

There's no upper age limit for law, also you can pursue it after your graduation, which will be LLB for a duration of three years. So, if you don't want to go for integrated law program for a five years duration, you can skip that. If you choose to do LLB, you will also have enough time in your graduation to get well acquainted with law as a subject.
