This programme allows graduates with a degree in any area, to complete a Scots Law degree in two years, instead of four.

Choose from a range of options. This course is recognised by the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates, who regulate the profession in Scotland.

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.

"Scottish courts are public buildings and anyone can attend. Almost all trials are open to the public so that justice can be seen to be done. My fellow law students and I took a trip to Dundee Sheriff Court."
