This course allows graduates with a degree in any area, to complete an English Law degree in two years, instead of three. 

This course is recognised in common law countries that accept an English qualifying degree.

We offer training for the exams to enter the Institute of Professional Legal Studies in Northern Ireland and have close connections with providers of the Legal Practice Course and (LPC) Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) in England.

This course is fully accredited by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (England and Wales) so when you graduate you will have full flexibility in deciding where to complete your legal training.

Kevin Wahba, from Canada, travelled to Dundee as an international student and graduated in 2014 from English Law – Accelerated Program and is currently Registrar of the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors.

"I consider the University of Dundee a significant part of the foundation of my success over the years and believe that any student searching for an opportunity for adventure, a quality learning experience, and the chance to make lifelong friends would be as impressed and satisfied as I am"

The qualifying route for solicitors in England and Wales is changing. The centralised Solicitors’ Qualifying Exam (SQE) will be replacing the Qualifying Law Degree (QLD).

If you firmly accept an offer to this, or another qualifying course, by 31 August 2021, you can follow either the QLD or SQE route. If you accept after 1 September 2021, you can only take the new Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination route.

Along with your studies we encourage our students to join one of our Law societies:

  • The Dundee University Law Society is one of the biggest and most active societies on campus and helps build your Law network.
  • The Law Review is a publication run by students and reviewed by academics to ensure high academic standards. This is an ideal opportunity to gain legal editing and writing experience.
  • Our Mooting society is a great place to practice debate. Members have represented Scotland at the International Court of Justice.
  • The Telders competition provides an opportunity for law students with an interest in public international law to hone their skills in front of leading experts.
“The course has allowed me to expand my academic skills and has helped to make me an attractive prospect for employers. I undertook a 3 week legal placement which allowed me to gain practical insight into the work of a solicitor and built the skills I need to boost my employability. ”
