If you graduate with this degree, you have a choice of jurisdictions where you can study for your postgraduate professional qualification. This will give you a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace. A moot is a legal debate and the Dundee Mooting Society is one of the most successful in the UK. The Society runs training and internal competitions for students and teams from Dundee compete in most of the major mooting competitions in the UK and internationally. Some of our LLB students participate in the Law Society of Scotland’s Street Law programme, delivering classes on the law and legal issues to school pupils. If you join the Street Lawyers, you will learn to plan and deliver classes, and make use of your legal knowledge in a practical way. This will boost your presentation skills and confidence, and also encourage school pupils to consider studying law.
We have close links with employers and we offer programmes to support and develop the employability of our students. Our excellent reputation throughout the profession and close links to employers help Dundee graduates find employment. The Law School runs an annual Law Fair which attracts law firms and employers from around the UK and further afield. Law firms also regularly visit the law school on an individual basis for recruitment purposes. While many students study law in order to qualify to practise, the skills acquired in a law degree are also attractive to many prospective employers and the LLB is an ideal basis for a career in professions such as: the police, Banking, Journalism, Management, civil service. If you do want to enter the English (or Welsh, or Northern Irish) legal profession, you may go on to take the Legal Practice Course and (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) in England, or sit the examinations for the Institute of Professional Legal Studies in Northern Ireland. If you want to enter the Scottish legal profession, our Diploma in Legal Practice (PEAT 1) has an excellent record of graduate employment across the UK and is taught by practicing solicitors.
