LLB. Although I believe you graduated with it, not from it. If it's from Oxford, Cambridge or London it'd be LLB (Oxon.), LLB (Cantab) or LLB (LOnd). I think.

It's BA (Hons) if it's Cambridge (and I think Oxford, but I don't know about London)

I'm confused why do you have LLB after your name, do you mean anytime you write your name down or the certificate you get when you graduate?

I thought law graduates were meant to be intelligent.:ninja:

Yes, you can append LLB should you wish to, if that's what your institution awards.

Julia dearest I do hope you don't use this toxic tongue of yours on your clients. :p:

An "x" after the name, alternatively, might be nice.

Julia *has* been rather mean recently--is she perhaps becoming jaded by the life of a barrister?

As to the OP--putting 'LLB' after your name sounds rather pretentious, as it's not much of an achievement...

Well I've definitely seen it done but I think the context has to be right.

I've seen it done by estate agents, which only serves to proudly proclaim 'I am a failure, please kick me in the testicles.'

I knew someone who incorporated 'BA' into his signature.

Bless.

There is a committee/commission with the power to confer QC status nowadays.
right so your chosen by a board, but what do they look for, for example landmark cases or something that they have judged on, im thinking experiece because they are never young

ah yes sweet naivety
now why would you write down your name followed by your qualification, unless its for an official document or something otherwise it just looks like your showing of like that 'de lacy brown' guy from the apprentice who put de lacy in his name because it looked noble or something
