2. Bachelor of Laws (LLB): Your son can enrol in a three-year LLB program after earning a bachelor's degree in any field. After completing their undergraduate degrees, this is the conventional path for students who desire to specialize in law.

3. Juris Doctor/Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD): Your son can enrol in a Juris Doctor program if he is thinking about studying law abroad. It is a professional graduate legal degree that is available in nations viz., the United States, Canada, and Australia. The JD program is typically three years long and is intended for students having a bachelor's degree in any field.

4. Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL): The Bachelor of Civil Law is a postgraduate legal degree that provides an in-depth study of several legal areas in some nations, including the UK. It is a one-year program for students who have previously earned a law degree or the equivalent.

5. Bachelor of Legal Studies: Some nations, notably the US, offer this as an undergraduate degree. It offers a thorough grounding in legal ideas and can act as a springboard for further legal study or careers in related disciplines.

6. Pre-law Bachelor of Arts or Science degree: For students interested in obtaining a legal degree, certain colleges have undergraduate programs designed just for them. To foster the critical thinking and analytical abilities needed in the legal profession, these courses concentrate on topics like political science, history, and ethics.

7. Diploma/Certificate Courses: Institutes provide a number of certificate and diploma programs in a variety of legal specialties.
