"Ignorance of the law is no excuse"

How often have you heard that phrase - but do you really know the law? Do you rent property - have a proper lease? - know the law in relation to inheritance for 'step' children? - understand the rights of couples who cohabit? - understand about the courts and know what would be expected of you if you were cited to be a witness? - know your rights when buying goods over the internet? Dundee Law School can help you know and understand your rights - and responsibilities.
