Graduate keen to pursue a career in law with choice for future practice? Aberdeen Law School offers the opportunity of a highly-ranked two-year LLB programme for graduates in other subjects with a good honours degree. You’ll gain all the benefits of combining our trademark breadth, depth, choice and quality at the highly-ranked Aberdeen Law school, with all the necessary subjects to proceed to the next stage of academic training in Scotland OR in England and Wales.
This LLB Accelerated Law with English Law programme is a graduate law degree which allows non-law graduates to achieve a dual-qualifying Scots and English LLB in just two years. If you already have a good undergraduate degree in a subject other than law, this is your route to qualifying without any compromise on quality. Places are limited and this is a very highly sought programme. Our Law school is ranked 12th in the UK out of more than 90 law schools and in the top five for graduate prospects. 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 lots of opportunity to hone your developing legal skills in student-led initiatives such as mock legal debating, our highly active Law Society, the students’ journal in which your work may be published, and our community law clinic – the Aberdeen Law Project.
Should you practise law, you'll enjoy a wide variety of career options within the law itself. 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 including business, media, finance and banking, teaching, governmental bodies and departments, and the police force.
