The Scots Law degree is the required degree for those planning to enter the Scottish legal profession. It also provides an excellent starting point for those who wish to, after qualification in Scotland, seek out qualification in England and Wales and Northern Ireland (not to mention many other jurisdictions around the world). Additionally, the Scots Law curriculum offers intellectual depth and has a range of flexible options and provides a superb starting point for many other careers besides law. Glasgow School of Law has a hugely successful study abroad programme with more than 60% of students undertaking international mobility in normal years. For 2022, Law at Glasgow is ranked 5th in the UK (Guardian University Guide, The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide and Complete University Guide). There are many opportunities for you to study law with languages. A language may be studied for three years of the Honours degree (the Law with Legal Studies programme) or throughout the four years of the degree (the Law with Languages programme). During the first two years of the degree, language skills will be carefully developed. This will prepare you to make the most of the opportunity to increase your fluency in a foreign environment while advancing your knowledge of law. You will spend your third year studying Law in a partner university abroad, where teaching and learning take place in French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish. In the fourth year, you may continue to study language as an Honours subject and will graduate with a Law with Languages degree or concentrate solely on law subjects and graduate with a Law with Legal Studies degree, for example, Law with French Legal Studies.
