Bachelor of Laws

n. the course in law from a certified school of law, shortened to LLB, it denotes that the graduate student was able to finish three years of law studies and a minimum of three years of pre-law. Originally, the recognized schools of law would grant the Juris Doctor (JD) title instead of LLB title. But this changed long after the early 1960s when many law schools which originally made the change permitted the LLB recipients to claim the JD title later on.
