It's not just a body of rules or knowledge - it also has its own methods, philosophies, culture and language. Of course, it’s also what vital institutions (the legal profession, the judiciary, courts, etc.) do. The LLB is a specialist degree, covering all aspects of law. Our course - tailored to the Law Society of Scotland's requirements - is broad-based, intellectually challenging and rewarding. It’s available as an undergraduate degree and a two-year accelerated graduate degree.

Module titles Semesters 1 – 5 During the first five semesters, you are introduced to the fundamental areas of law. Core modules include: Public Law and Legal System Law of Contract Law of Delict Family Law Criminal Law Company and Commercial Law Evidence Property Law Trust and Succession Law Jurisprudence Alternative Commercial Dispute Resolution Semesters 5 – 8 From Semester 5 onwards, you can select advanced modules from a range of specialist legal topics, including: Legal Research Methods Labour Law Intellectual Property Law Information Technology Law Environmental Law International Trade Law Competition Law Sports Law Child Law Prejudice, Discrimination and the Law Collective Labour Law European Law Domestic Relations Alternative Commercial Dispute Resolution Teaching and assessment Teaching on the LLB is delivered via a combination of lectures and seminars.
