It would read BA instead of LLB although Oxford is BA even though it is qualifying.

An accredited law degree has all of the compulsory modules that make the law degree qualifying so you could take the LPC (before the SQE) or BTCP whereas a non accredited law degree doesn’t have all of the compulsory so they would have do the GDL to to the LPC or BTCP. Most are BAs but some LLBs aren’t qualifying, including the Law with something (Uni of Manchester has a qualifying Law with politics degree but somewhere else might have that degree but not all the compulsory modules). Oxbridge use BAs because of their broad education system (e.g. natural sciences isn’t specialised to one specific science) but qualify due to their compulsory modules.

BPTC*

Law with a Year Abroad courses tend always qualifying. Law with another discipline (e.g. Politics) will depend on the uni & on the courses the student will take.

Worth making it clear to the OP that whether they have a QLD or not will no longer matter if they plan on becoming a solicitor.

This is an irrelevant cosmetic distinction. There are far more important implications for accreditation
