    I saw on the Faculty's page that the BA is called 'BA in Jurisprudence', not Law. Does that mean that the course is different from other Law Bachelors or is it only named Jurisprudence for historical reasons?

    There are differences in terms of the substantive material you learn, but it's still a law degree. The biggest one is the teaching of Roman law (which is actually more useful than you'd imagine in certain extremely specific circumstances). Smaller differences include the fact that you only do three full modules in first year (owing to the awkward super-early timings of the Law Mods), the fact that you have a summer coursework essay at the end of your second year, and the fact that there are only two module choices to be taken in third year (most LLB courses offer more; usually four or five).
