Why study Law at Abertay?

Keen to develop your evaluation skills and enhance your ability to interpret and explain complex information clearly? Eager to sharpen your reasoning and critical judgement? Ready for a career in a prestigious and rewarding profession? A law degree from Abertay awaits.

Law at Abertay explores the Scottish legal system and the building blocks of Scots law, neatly complemented with subjects from other disciplines. This approach helps you develop a view of the differing contexts in which law operates.

Delivered by staff in the Division of Law in Dundee Business School, this degree:

  • Enables graduates, on successful completion of postgraduate studies and a traineeship, to become Scottish solicitors
  • Is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates
  • Offers extracurricular activities such as the Citizens Advice Bureau Employment Law Clinic

You’ll also use the university’s moot room for debates, client interviews and other exercises where you’ll present legal arguments. Work placement and single-term overseas study opportunities are available in Year 3, with both designed to broaden your knowledge of law and legal systems.
