When you join Dundee Law School you will have access to dedicated careers support, both during and after your studies, through the Careers Service.  This includes 1-1 advice on constructing your cv and preparing for interviews.  Students also benefit from the guidance of our academics who have a wide range of international insights and experience from legal practice.  We maintain strong connections with our Alumni who have run careers focused Q&A sessions and many are also involved in Mentoring.


We support our students who wish to apply for competitive internships – these can form part of your LLM or be undertaken after your studies.  Our students have succeeded in securing prestigious internships in a range of international organisations, including the Council of the European Union, the European Court of Human Rights and the Hague Conference on Private International Law.  And for some, internships can lead directly to a full time paid role.

Pagoda Projects

LLM students can also apply for a global internship with our partners Pagoda Projects to develop employability skills and gain valuable international work experience.  A Pagoda internship, can be undertaken in a variety of locations globally, or done remotely.  Either way it lasts 8 weeks and takes the place of the LLM dissertation.  Students complete an internship report.
