Law (Eng/NI) with French LLB (Hons)
Study towards practising Law in England, Wales, Northern Ireland (or in other common law jurisdictions globally) alongside French
Dundee City Campus
This course is recognised in common law countries that accept an English qualifying degree.
You start this course with 120 credits which lets you complete your degree in three years.
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.
You'll also study one French module per semester in each year, either as a beginner or at the intensive level if you have previously studied the language at Higher/A-Level.
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.
