What is the LLB for?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Article questioning the purpose of the Bachelor of Laws in legal education. For decades, the majority of intrants to the solicitor branch of the legal profession have arrived at the Society’s door in possession of a Bachelor of Laws degree. While graduating LLB has remained the preferred route for most intending solicitors, it is not the only route to qualification. Indeed, for some, and for varied reasons, a three or four-year full time degree course or a six-year part time course, may not be feasible options. At the time of writing, 30 individuals are registered with the Society as “pre-Diploma trainees”. This group of people intend to qualify by means of the Society’s own professional exams while undertaking a three year traineeship in a solicitor’s office.
