Why Dundee?

The University of Dundee is the epitome of what a good university should be. It provides an outstanding education and university experience for its students, is a key driver in the regional and national economy, and its researchers – particularly in the medical field – are pushing back the boundaries of knowledge and the treatments available to the wider benefit of society.

Dundee Law School is internationally recognised for its teaching and research. At Dundee, small group teaching (max 20 students per class) is favoured. This means that you will have direct‌ access to renowned authorities. You will be taught by leading experts with first-hand knowledge of the law. Our teaching staff regularly advises governments as well as international and non-governments organisations and participate in proceedings before international courts and tribunals.
