    > “The Bar council of India is an approving body only for the Ll.B degree. For one to be eligible to practice in a court or be registered with any State bar association one must possess an Ll.B degree. The Bar council of India does not recognise an Ll.B earned through distance learning mode. However the Bar council of India is not the governing body for the Master’s in Intellectual Property Laws programme, since this degree alone does not make one eligible to be registered with a bar or to practise in court – the focus of the MIPL programme is on developing a comprehensive understanding of Intellectual Property Laws, rather than enabling one to practice before a court of law.

    > The MIPL programme has been approved by the Central Government and the Association of Indian Universities. All IGNOU degrees – including the MIPL degree – are recognised on par with any degree awarded by any other Indian university. Furthermore, all students who successfully complete the MIPL programme would be awarded a Master’s degree, which is recognised, and hence would make them eligible to take up higher education such as M.Phil or Ph.D through distance learning or otherwise.”
