Law (Scots) LLB (Hons)
Study the subjects you need to proceed to qualify as a solicitor or an advocate in Scotland
You can study Scots Law and proceed to train as either a solicitor or an advocate in Scotland.
Choose from a range of options in your third and fourth years. This course is recognised by the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates, who regulate the profession in Scotland.
Students on our LLB Scots Law often choose to enrol on our Dual Qualifying route. You can then proceed to qualify to practise law in England, Wales, or Northern Ireland.
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 Dundee International Law Society is a student-led society that arranges seminars, debates, colloquia and presentations on international law problems and prospects.
- 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 provides training and practice in advocacy. Each year members participate in national and international competitions, including at the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
- The Telders International Law Moot Court Competition provides an opportunity for law students with an interest in public international law to hone their skills in front of leading experts and compete against teams from across Europe.
