Hi there!
Most Russian after graduation get so-called “Specialist” degree. It’s higher than bachelor (because lasts at least 5 years) but lower than PhD (Russian PhD is also differ – its name “Candidate of science”).

So what kind of short form for science “specialist” is appropriate?

Oh!! 7 out of 8

Friday, February 8th 2013

Sorry jon, but you didn’t explain what meant LLB, you said law. And in the quiz the right answer is the latim name. Also in the quiz appears in the last question the last answer something you haven’t mentioned.
To me it wasn’t clear if the bachelar was a degree you do AFTER college or it is college itself?
A sugestion, why don’t you right eerything in the board before start the class, so you don’t make that awfull noise and odn’t waist time? Other teacher do that and it seems to work . But i think you are a great teacher. Thanks.

Lower Lawyer Bachelor

You need to explain it more, please…..

Saturday, July 20th 2013

    Good I also want to know about that question.

    Wednesday, February 12th 2014

    The Bachelor of Laws (Latin: Legum Baccalaureus) or LL.B. is an undergraduate, or bachelor, degree in law (or a first professional degree in law, depending on jurisdiction) originating in England and offered in most common law Jurisdictions. [1] In English-speaking Canada it is sometimes referred to as a post-graduate degree because previous university education is usually required for admission. The “LL.” of the abbreviation for the degree is from the genitive plural legum (of lex, law). Creating an abbreviation for a plural, especially from Latin, is often done by doubling the first letter (e.g. “pp” for “pages”), thus “LL.B.” stands for Legum Baccalaureus in Latin. It is sometimes erroneously called “Bachelor of Legal Letters” to account for the double “L”.
