Undergraduate LLB courses

We offer qualifying degrees in Scots law and in English, Welsh and Northern Irish law. You can study a dual qualifying degree in both Scots and English law, allowing you to train as a lawyer in any part of the UK. Our English Law LLB is attractive to international applicants as a qualifying Common Law degree.

We have designed our LLBs to be very flexible. If you start on the Scots Law LLB, you can easily switch to Dual Qualifying. If you take the English Law LLB, there is an opportunity to stay an extra year to pick up Scots subjects to qualify in Scotland. Watch our YouTube video about studying a 3 year English Law LLB.

The LLB with Languages offers the opportunity to study Scots or English Law with French or Spanish. We encourage overseas exchanges and have links with many European universities.

We also offer our LLB Law with Energy Law. You will spend your final year of undergraduate study developing a detailed knowledge and expertise in this key commercial field. It is possible to combine Scots law with another subject such as History or Politics and obtain a joint honours LLB.

Whichever LLB you study, you will be able to choose from a range of commercial, vocational and theoretical subjects to suit your interests and future career plans.

The accelerated LLB takes two years, and is open to graduates holding an undergraduate degree in any subject. All of the subjects required by the relevant Law Societies are taken in the two year period, and there is an opportunity to take modules in additional subjects to suit your interests and career aspirations. Support is given by the careers service at an early stage to ensure you are ready for traineeship applications.

Postgraduate LLM courses

Our courses are all highly flexible. If you study our LLM Law (General), you can choose from across our full portfolio of modules to make your own bespoke Masters.

You can study for a specialist LLM and you can make this choice, or change specialisms after you start. As well as concentrating on areas such as international commercial and corporate law, environmental or business and human rights law, some allow for multidisciplinary study.

You can also study abroad if you choose one of our articulated LLMs. You can spend a semester at a leading French Law School (Cergy-Pontoise or Toulouse). There, you are taught in English and will gain a comparative perspective of international commercial law or private international law.
