The Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) is an academic degree achieved for undergraduate studies in Law Sciences. The abbreviation LL.B. stands for Legum Baccalaureus, where LL. is the Latin abbreviation for laws. A consecutive Master's programme in Law Sciences is awarded as a Master of Laws (LL.M.) accordingly.
An LL.B. degree offered by an international law school takes 3-4 years to complete. During a Bachelor of Laws, you spend a lot of time studying Law books and criminal codes, memorising stipulations and exceptions. You analyse cases and learn how to efficiently summarise information. Classes also focus on Legal Ethics and students learn about legal principles like the presumption of innocence, which states that a person is considered innocent unless proven guilty.
In contrast to other Bachelor’s degrees, such as the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) or the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), the Bachelor of Laws is not that wide-spread. Many countries, like Germany, for example, still require an additional state examination in order to be eligible for practising law.
