Explanation

  1. Law Degree a.k.a. The Juris Doctor is a professional doctorate and first professional graduate degree in law. The degree is earned by completing law school in the United States, Canada, Australia, and other common law countries.

A legal license is granted and exercised locally; while the Law Degree can have local, international, and world-wide aspects- e.g., in Britain the Legal Practice Course is required to become a British solicitor or the Bar Professional Training Course to become a barrister.
