On a slightly more serious note, this is my (very long) mailing list for future FOI requests, so if you'd like to see another university be the subject of my requests, post it in the thread below.

It's the 5+1 medicine courses that got variable names. Some call them foundation year, some are gateway years and some are "our course is so amazing 9 grand more is nothing year".

In truth, they all call it Bachelor of Laws. That's what LLB means.

B = bachelor's. LL = laws (owing to double LL being plural in Latin).

So the rest of them just don't know Latin?

No, they're just not fans of tautology.

My degree certificate says Bachelor of Laws. I didn't go to LSE or Southy.

I expected it to be some other poster who has been fascinated about how University determined which firm you end up and I recall him being very invested in it. Maybe there was some hidden meaning, handshake or something, but still a bit bemused it was worth compiling or cutting and pasting. So most unis call their Law courses Law? I think the thread is a bit too much for me. Have fun.

Some rarities:-

The old Scottish professional qualification was the BL, Batchelor of Law (singular), generally studied for after the MA degree.

The University of Rhodesia (later Zimbabwe) also offered a 3 year BL with a one year postgrad LLB.

Cambridge grade inflated all its higher batchelorships to master ships, hence Cambridge LLBs became LLMs. Oxford partially resisted the temptation with its BCL, BPhil in philosophy and BD.

Of course Cambridge’s course is misnamed because it is not a batchelorship of laws. Canon law hasn’t been taught there since the reformation.

Indeed the only canon law course in the UK is at Cardiff which is equally misnamed LLM despite not including any civil law. It really should be CnLM.

I don’t there are any single honours BSc degrees in law left in the Uk. Leicester Poly amongst others used to offer it.

Durham and Kent’s undergraduate law degrees used to be BAs. Nottingham’s BA (Law) is now a qualifying law degree.

This is sufficient reason to choose to study for a degree in maths instead of law I believe.
