How you'll be taught

Dundee is a small and friendly law school where staff and students know each other. You will be taught using a combination of face to face lectures, seminars and tutorials.

Even in the subjects students take with both streams, your lecture sizes will never be more than 165 students and seminars are limited to 25 students and tutorials are limited to 15.

How will your students be assessed? 

Students are assessed using a range of techniques including essays, reports, presentations / graded moots, class exams and final examinations.

What you will study

The Graduate Entry LLB will provide you with a rounded legal education as well as covering all the mandatory subjects for the law societies.

These include: Foundations of Law, Contract Law, Tort or Delict, Criminal Law and Evidence, Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Human Rights, European Union Law, Property Law, Commercial Law and Family Law.

Students can also choose from a variety of options, which may include Roman Law, Careers, Environmental Law, Taxation, Intellectual Property, International Law and International Private Law.

Law ranks 5th in the Telegraph’s top 12 degree subjects for getting a job behind medicine and dentistry, veterinary science, medical related and education (August 17, 2015).

I am really enjoying the challenge of the Accelerated Scots Law LLB. It stretches me, challenging my preconceptions about the law and it can have so many applications, both in and outside the legal profession. I already have an honours degree so being able to offer an employer an LLB, along with my other skills and experience, will hopefully allow me to create my own niche in a competitive market.
