From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

      n 1: an honorary law degree [syn: Doctor of Laws, LLD]

From The Devil's Dictionary (1881-1906) :

  LL.D.  Letters indicating the degree _Legumptionorum Doctor_, one
  learned in laws, gifted with legal gumption.  Some suspicion is cast
  upon this derivation by the fact that the title was formerly _LL.d._,
  and conferred only upon gentlemen distinguished for their wealth.  At
  the date of this writing Columbia University is considering the
  expediency of making another degree for clergymen, in place of the old
  D.D. -- _Damnator Diaboli_.  The new honor will be known as _Sanctorum
  Custus_, and written _$$c_.  The name of the Rev. John Satan has been
  suggested as a suitable recipient by a lover of consistency, who
  points out that Professor Harry Thurston Peck has long enjoyed the
  advantage of a degree.
