This combined honours programme does not include all courses required to proceed to the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice and thereafter to the legal profession in Scotland.
For students on joint honours programmes who wish to retain the option of practising as a lawyer in Scotland, it may be possible to complete the additional courses required. Where this is an option, it will typically require extra study throughout the programme.
Students who wish to undertake a joint honours programme should therefore consider the possible impact of this on qualifying as solicitors, and discuss this with their Personal Tutor on arrival in the Law School.
