Course summary

Law and English Law with European Legal Studies at Aberdeen is a brilliant combination which builds on the strong reputation of our highly-ranked Aberdeen Law School plus the bonus of gaining all the necessary subjects to pursue your career in Scotland, England, Wales OR Northern Ireland. You’ll also have the further career advantage of spending a full year of your five-year programme abroad studying in-depth the legal systems of Europe. Our Law school is ranked 5th out of over 90 law schools in the UK (the Times GUG 2019 and CUG 2019) and with 94% student satisfaction rating (NSS 2017).Law at Aberdeen looks at the historical, social, political and economic forces that influence our legal systems and govern our societies. You’ll 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.You’ll also have opportunities to hone your skills in student-led initiatives such as mock legal debating, our Law Society, students’ journal, and our community law clinic – the Aberdeen Law Project. As with all the other combined programmes, you’ll cover the required content of Scots and English Law to gain the LLB. You’ll also spend all your third year through the the Erasmus Exchange Programme at either Aarhus, Deusto, Helsinki, Leuven or Maastricht universities, or the Vienna University of Economics and Business, studying European legal systems with courses taught in English.Should you choose to practise law, your skills and experience will give you brilliant opportunities including internationally. However more than a third of Aberdeen law graduates now choose to use their law degree as a passport for entry into a wide range of careers requiring these skills, including business, media, finance and banking, teaching, governmental bodies and departments, and the police force.Students wishing to transfer from another university, into the LLB degree at Aberdeen must submit an application to UCAS by the closing date of 15 January. The University of Aberdeen will only consider transfer into year 1 or year 2 of the LLB.**Graduates wishing to apply for an LLB** should apply for the 2-year LLB Accelerated degree – **Law Accelerated (M115)** or **Law with English Law Accelerated (M116)**.
