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 is fully accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority for England and Wales, the Bar Council and the Law Society of Northern Ireland. When you graduate you will have full flexibility in deciding where to complete your legal training.

The qualifying route for solicitors in England and Wales is changing. The centralised Solicitors’ Qualifying Exam (SQE) will be replacing the Qualifying Law Degree (QLD).

If you firmly accept an offer to this, or another qualifying course, by 31 August 2021, you can follow either the QLD or SQE route. If you accept after 1 September 2021, you can only take the new Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination route.

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.
