    Dear Guest,

    You shall first have to appear for CLAT (Common Law Admission Test), to be eligible to appear in CLAT, you should have obtained a Senior Secondary School / Intermediate (10+2) or its equivalent certificate from a recognized Board with minimum 45% marks in aggregate. There is a 5% relaxation for SC / ST candidates.

    As you have not mentioned where you are from, I can not give more specific answers. However, to pursue law from Delhi University, the criteria is different, you have to appear for an entrance exam conducted by DU. The details are as under.

    Eligibility

    Graduate Degree with 50% marks for General & OBC candidates; Relaxation up to 5% marks for Physically Handicapped (PH) candidates; 45% marks for widows/wards of ex-servicemen/serving personnel (CW); and degree with pass marks for SC/ST candidates.

    For 2013, the exam shall be held this month, i.e.June. For details log on to http://law.entrancecorner.com/admiss...ification.html .

    I hope the information helps.
