Career opportunities

This programme is ideally suited to individuals seeking to begin or develop careers in the fields of commercial law, business or finance. Recent graduates are now working in a variety of legal roles including, following prior or further professional study, litigator and legal counsel in companies such as Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Standard Life.

Programme Structure

  • You must complete 180 credits of study – 60 credits are taken in the compulsory dissertation and the remaining 120 credits are taken in taught courses. On these courses, your studies will be led by members of the Law School academic community, most of whom are legally qualified in Scotland, England or other jurisdictions, as well as some experienced legal and industry practitioners.
  • You are expected to prepare in advance by reading the required materials and by reflecting on the issues to be discussed, and your participation in classes will be assessed. For the dissertation you will have a supervisor from whom you can expect guidance and support, but the purpose of the dissertation is to allow you to independently design and conduct a piece of research and analysis.
  • Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances or lack of demand for particular courses, we may not be able to run all courses as advertised come the start of the academic year.
