This course gives you a broad foundation in the law of Scotland. Over the course of two years, you'll study all the subjects specified by the Law Society of Scotland to enable you to seek qualification as a solicitor. This degree will improve your communication, research, problem-solving and presentation skills. The LLB is also an excellent qualification if you wish to work in other professions, particularly those related to business and finance. 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 (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 three (PEAT 2, also known as the traineeship). Law is a competitive profession and completion of the DLP is no guarantee of a traineeship. Possession of a prior Honours degree is desirable. Many Law students choose not to enter the legal profession, but use their LLB as a stepping-stone into other professions, particularly banking, finance, the civil service, teaching and the police. Some go on to further study or go into business.
