Course summary

The LLB at Edinburgh is designed to prepare you for a career as a lawyer in Scotland, providing the ideal foundation for further professional study. In accordance with the requirements of the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates, we will ensure you gain the legal skills and knowledge needed for a future as either a solicitor, or as an advocate, in the Scottish legal profession. The LLB is not only a gateway to practising law. Many of our graduates opt not to practise law, and find the LLB to be an excellent grounding for many other careers in areas such as:* financial services* politics* journalism* public policy* government workThe LLB programme will provide you with a range of useful skills in logic and rhetoric, transferable to other academic and professional fields. The programme aims to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of the theory, concepts and rules of law in their socio-economic, institutional, and historical frameworks. While the programme is grounded in Scots law and the Scots legal system, you will also be made familiar with the law and legal systems in the other parts of the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the wider world. This programme is intended as a qualifying degree for professional practice in Scotland. However, a number of graduates also go on to qualify and practise law in other jurisdictions, in Europe and elsewhere, in accordance with the relevant local conversion requirements and any further study required in the non-Scottish destination jurisdiction.
