Wondering whether it's a bit like medicine where some unis teach via problems whereas others don't.

LLB = qualifying law degree as in it includes the 7 core modules (a quick good search will reveal this.)
BA is usually not a qualifying law degree, but there are some exceptions for example in the case of Oxford and Cambridge, their law degrees are called BA's but they are qualifying law degrees. (QLD)

A law with politics (or something) course is also sometimes called a BA, but it can be qualifying depending on which modules you do as well apparently.

No difference. The important thing is that a law degree is a QLD. Any straight law course almost certainly will.
