Law school

Law school. In the United States the institution where future lawyers obtain a legal degree, in most cases the J.D. though some schools still award the L.L.B. degree is called a law school which is usually an autonomous entity within a larger university and considered to be a graduate school program. In other jurisdictions these programs are more completely integrated into the other university faculties, such as in Canada where they are often called a faculty of law. Even though the first degree is considered at doctoral degree the other degrees that are awarded included the Master of Laws degree (L.L.M.) and the Doctor of Laws degree (J.S.D.).
