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:
