MEANING OF LL.B., LL.M., LL.D., JJ. & pp.

An LL.B. is the award of the degree of Bachelor of Laws. LL.B. is a Latin word. It stands for ‘Legum Baccalaureus’, signifying 'Bachelor of Laws'. In Latin abbreviations, the plural form of a word is indicated by doubling the letter- hence ‘LL.’ is short for Laws.

LL.M. is Latin abbreviation for Legum Magister, signifying 'Master of Laws'.

LL.D. is Latin abbreviation for Legum Doctor, signifying 'Doctor of Laws'.

JJ. is Latin abbreviation for "Justices".

pp. is Latin abbreviation for "pages".

dear freind i would like you to add the following: the 'v' in the name of a court case does not stand for 'versus', but for 'and' (in civil proceedings] or 'against' (in criminal proceedings]

There is one other matter that needs to be resolved. Why call it LAWS in the plural when all you are studying is the LAW of the land?

The answer lies in the history of the subject at a time when both the canon and the common law were part of the syllabus. Therefore it was called LAWS. However this is not required today as we only study the common law and therefore LB would be more appropriate in this day and age.

Doug said...

I don't think L B would be more appropriate in this day and age - there are many laws and many different types of law - public, contract, criminal, tort and so forth - I would therefore argue that LLB is still as appropriate today as it has ever been........

I don't think L B would be more appropriate in this day and age - there are many laws and many different types of law - public, contract, criminal, tort and so forth - I would therefore argue that LLB is still as appropriate today as it has ever been........so llb is fine!
