    It used to be. Universities didn't consider law worthy of academic study until the mid nineteenth century.

    Definitely not! It's a well-respected degree worldwide. That being said, it doesn't guarantee you immediate access to a job. For instance, I know many Law graduates who've completely drifted away from their original career goal and are now doing pitiful, meaningless jobs. At the end of the day, it all comes down to what you'll choose to do with your degree.

    Whilst Oxford did not offer its BA until the 19th century the attached wiki does tend to suggest an older tradition.

    Similar to Oxford re degree status, and a bit later of the mark, but Edinburgh also carries its legal tradition a bit earlier.

    I think it's fairly well established that up until the time of the LLB, most law teaching was (as the Oxon BA suggests) highly philosophical in nature and not what is commonly understood to be legal education now.
