What is the meaning of "LLB"?


According to Cornell Law School, "LLB" stands for Legum Baccalaureus in Latin, which means "Bachelor of Laws." The Bachelor of Laws is an undergraduate degree that originated in England and is the primary law degree in most common law countries.

In Canada, the "Bachelor of Laws" is described as a post-graduate degree because previous university education is required for admission. The LLB was conferred at Yale University until 1971, but the United States has replaced the Bachelor of Laws with the J.D. (Juris Doctor). Many other common law countries are following suit of the United States and have replaced or are in the process of replacing the LLB with the J.D.
