Course summary

As technology advances legal practice is increasingly evolving to embrace the advantages of computing science. This degree programme combines two critical educational assets, a qualifying degree in law from a top 5 UK Law School and the ability to program computers and work with advanced data systems. By studying the LLB Law with Computing Science you will experience an integrated education combining a qualifying law degree with computing science skills.Legal practice is already being transformed by big data and computer forensics. It is likely that legal practice will be impacted on by developments within artificial intelligence, for example AI supporting law document creation. The advent of computer protocols such as the block chain are also likely to drive further innovation in legal documentation and transactions. The legal profession is facing the paradigm changes previously seen in engineering ,banking and the media that were driven by advancements in computer science. This degree will enable graduates to embrace these changes and success in the new world of computationally enhanced legal services.Law at Aberdeen looks at the historical, social, political and economic forces that influence our legal systems and govern our societies. You will learn to think like a lawyer rather than just 'learn' law. A major factor in our quality is the calibre and enthusiasm of our staff, testing your mental agility with complex, realistic legal scenarios as you get to grips with criminal, public and private law, legal systems, contracts, human rights and explore family law, the law of property and legal aspects of the EU.From a computer science perspective you gain a solid foundation in a subject area which is in high demand, giving you skills in programme languages, data management, different systems, robotics, and problem-solving, operating systems and web application development. You will graduate with great employment opportunities, both in legal professions and also in careers for which the intellectual and practical qualities you have developed will make you highly sought-after by employers, including business, politics, media, finance and banking, and government services.**Students wishing to transfer from another University**, into the LLB degree at Aberdeen must submit an application to UCAS by the equal consideration deadline date.
