Course summary

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). Social & Public Policy focuses on finding ways to address global and societal challenges such as poverty and inequality, housing, health, technology, and sustainability. The programme applies ideas from political science, sociology and economics to understand how governments shape their responses to address people’s needs, welfare and wellbeing. The Social & Public Policy Teaching Team was awarded the prestigious Social Policy Association/Policy Press Outstanding Teaching Award 2020, in recognition of UofG’s excellence and innovation in teaching in social policy in the UK (SPA 2020). Social Policy at Glasgow was ranked joint top in the UK for student satisfaction in the NSS 2019. You’ll have the valuable opportunity of a work placement with a voluntary or public sector organisation.
