Law with options in Business Management at Aberdeen gives you all the benefits of our trademark quality at Aberdeen Law School – ranked 12th out of 90 in the UK, in the top five for graduate prospects, and with 95% student satisfaction – with the added advantage of skills in business and management, widening your already-bright career prospects still further.
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.
You will also add courses including managing organisations, managing customers and markets, the context of business and the legal aspects of organisations and insolvency – gaining useful specialist knowledge of the law as it applies to the world of organisations, management and business.
You will 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 choose to practise law, you will have a wide variety of career options within legal professions. 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 the business world for which you will be ideally prepared, media, finance and banking, teaching, governmental bodies and departments and the police force.
