    The "LL." of the abbreviation for the degree is from the genitive plural legum (of lex, legis f., law), thus "LL.B." stands for Legum Baccalaureus in Latin.

    I was originally told (many years ago) that it is Bachelor of Law and Legislature.  But it says differently from different sources using Google - just Bachelor of Law or Legum Baccalaureus in Latin.  So, do we accept the sources in Google?? Well... smile
