Law (Scots and English Dual Qualifying) LLB (Hons)
Study the subjects you need to proceed to qualify to practise Law in Scotland, and England, Wales, or Northern Ireland
Dual Qualifying is best suited to Scottish students, and you can change between the two until the end of second year.
You do not need to apply for both Scots and Dual degrees.
If you are from England, Wales or Northern Ireland you should apply for the LLB in English Law.
You can study Scots and English Law and proceed to train as either a solicitor or an advocate in Scotland, England, Wales, or Northern Ireland.
If you graduate with this degree, you have a choice of where you can study for your postgraduate professional qualification. This will give you a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace.
This course can be used as part of an accepted pathway into practice as a solicitor or a barrister in England and Wales, giving you full flexibility in deciding where to complete your training. Find out more about:
- the route to qualifying as a solicitor, using our guide to the Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination
- the process of becoming a barrister, at the Bar Standards Board website.
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.
