Subjects

Scots law

Spanish language

Our LLB in Scots law qualifies you move on to the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice and train as either a solicitor or an advocate in Scotland.

Students on our LLB Scots Law can also choose to apply to our Dual Qualifying degree. This also enables you to proceed to qualify to practice law in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.

You'll also study one Spanish module per semester in each year, either as a beginner or at intensive level if you have previously studied the language at Higher/A-Level.

Along with your studies we encourage our students to join one of our Law societies:

The Dundee University Law Society is one of the biggest and most active societies on campus and helps build your Law network.
The Law Review is a publication run by students and reviewed by academics to ensure high academic standards. This is an ideal opportunity to gain legal editing and writing experience.
Our Mooting society is a great place to practice debate. Members have represented Scotland at the International Court of Justice.
The Telders competition provides an opportunity for law students with an interest in public international law to hone their skills in front of leading experts.

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.
