Program description

Bachelor's Degree in Law with Psychology LLB

You'll study a broad base of core and optional modules, designed to help you achieve a qualifying law degree, and deepen your own specialist knowledge across law (your major subject) and psychology (your minor subject).

Our challenging and inspiring law and psychology degree will give you in-depth legal knowledge together with strong critical thinking and communication skills. Our unique employability skills programme will ensure you consolidate what you learn through exceptional work experience and networking opportunities.

Your psychology modules will teach you the fundamental concepts in psychology, and give you an overview of current issues in clinical psychology. These include:

  • behavioural neuroscience
  • personality and intelligence
  • making sense of ambiguous scenes
  • educational and developmental psychology
  • self-conscious emotions

As part of your degree you can:

  • experience law in action by applying to shadow a senior member of the judiciary in the High Court or Court of Appeal
  • work alongside legal professionals to advise students at the Law Clinic
  • engage with our academic research groups including the Stefan Cross Centre for Women, Equality and Law, and the Institute of Maritime Law
  • hone your presentation skills on the Streetlaw programme

You can take part in a range of competitions to enhance your skills, including the Clyde & Co Team Building Challenge and regional, national and international mooting and negotiation competitions.

You can forge even stronger links within our friendly community by joining a student-run society. These include our Law Society, Inns of Court Society, Mooting Society, Lawyers without Borders and the Canadian Law Society.
