Student societies

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.

“The Accelerated law course has allowed me to expand my academic skill-set 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 built the skills I need to boost my employability”
