The Bachelor of Laws is an undergraduate degree in law (or a first professional degree in law, depending on jurisdiction) originating in England and most common law jurisdictions as the degree which allows a person to become a lawyer. The standard degree is 3 years to complete. It can form the first major step towards qualifying for practice as a solicitor or barrister, but also represents appropriate preliminary training for a range of other careers in which legal knowledge is an asset.
