Course Summary

This course gives you a broad foundation in the law of Scotland. In the first three years you study all the subjects specified by the Law Society of Scotland to enable you to seek qualification as a solicitor. In fourth year, there is a range of optional law subjects, some focusing on specific areas of law not so far covered in the degree, such as Sports Law, and others being more discursive, enabling you to reflect on the function of law in a wider economic, political, international and social context. You'll also write a dissertation on a legal topic of your choice. Contemporary legal professionals must be business-orientated. Our LLB lets you choose a number of business-related non-law modules, such as Financial Accounting or Exploring Entrepreneurship. You may also study a language. Completion of the LLB (Ordinary or Honours) is stage one of qualifying as a solicitor in Scotland. Stage two is the Diploma in Legal Practice (DLP also known as Professional Education and Training Stage 1 or PEAT 1) currently offered by six universities in Scotland. Places on the DLP are allocated according to marks achieved in compulsory modules, typically taken in years 1-3 of the LLB. The DLP is a vocationally orientated course designed to prepare students for Stage 3 (PEAT 2, also known as the traineeship).
