Aberdeen University has launched an undergradaute degree that will give students a double qualification in English and Scottish law.
The first intake of students began the four-year LLB Law with English Law degree this month.
Dr Abbe Brown, Programme Director of the course, said: “This degree is extremely exciting for the law school, as it means our students are equipped for the first time to complete their training in England and Wales or in Scotland. We are delighted to offer these choices to students to support them in their academic and professional development.
“I look forward to seeing the different opportunities that will be available to them when they graduate from Aberdeen.”
Aberdeen is the second Scottish university to offer a dual English/Scottish qualification, following in the footsteps of Dundee.
At Dundee, students take the English law modules in their final two years, with acceptance on them depending on their performance in the first two years of the degree.
At Aberdeen, however, students will apply to do the Law with English Law degree from the outset, and take the English options in their first, second and third years.
