Course summary

Law and English Law at Aberdeen gives you all the benefits of our trademark quality with choice in where you wish to pursue your career. This combination at Aberdeen Law School – ranked 5th out of over 90 law schools in the UK (The Times GUG and CUG 2019) and with 94% student satisfaction (NSS 2017) – gives you all the necessary subjects to proceed to the next stage of academic training in Scotland or in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. 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. A key element of this degree is the choice it gives you for your future career decisions. If you take this degree (for which places are limited), you will have all the necessary subjects to be able to proceed to the professional training stage in Scotland or in England and Wales. We are able to offer this choice by adjusting the number of choices which are available to you in your timetable. 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. If you wish to practice law in Scotland, England or Wales, you will have a wide variety of career options. However, more than a third of Aberdeen law graduates now 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. Students wishing to transfer from another university, into the LLB degree at Aberdeen must submit an application to UCAS by the closing date of 15 January. The University of Aberdeen will only consider transfer into year 1 or year 2 of the LLB. Graduates wishing to apply for an LLB should apply for the 2-year LLB Accelerated degree – Law Accelerated (M115) or Law with English Law Accelerated (M116).
