Think Ahead

A Scots law degree is not only the first step towards qualifying as a solicitor in Scotland but is also an excellent springboard to many other careers.

1

Fully accredited by the Law Society of Scotland, this course gives you a broad foundation in the law of Scotland and enables you to seek qualification as a solicitor.

2

You can apply to join the student-run law clinic where you will have the chance to advise real life clients. The clinic is supported by local law firms.

Our lecturers have a wide range of experience and the majority have practised law as a solicitor or advocate.

FACILITIES

Our courses are delivered at the attractive and modern Craiglockhart campus. The campus features a range of high quality teaching rooms. It is also where the law clinic is located. The clinic has been supported by the Faculty of Advocates, Anderson Strathern, Shepherd & Wedderburn and other law firms. 

In April 2017, it received funding from the Access to Justice Foundation. It is run by students and offers a range of opportunities to undergraduates and helps them gain experience in advising clients. Recently the clinic partnered with Penicuik Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) to provide advice to its users.
