High quality research-led teaching
We were ranked 6th in the UK for Law in the 2023 Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide. In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework, 81% of our research was rated world-leading or internationally-excellent. Academic research underpins all that we do. These results are testament to the high quality, research-led teaching that is reflected in our high teaching standards.
We offer unrivalled opportunities for learning through our award winning Law Clinic, world-leading Clinical LLB programme and classes which blend real life experience and academic study. We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, from the traditional LLB to Masters degrees in subjects such as Criminal Justice, Construction Law and Mediation. Undergraduate LLB students have the opportunity to spend part of their degree studying abroad.
Innovative & forward thinking
We were one of the first Law Schools to offer a part time LLB, deliver webcast based teaching, and pioneer a transactional-learning based Diploma in Professional Legal Practice. We offer English law options to complement our core Scots law offering.
We invest in our learning facilities so you can make the most of your university experience. The Andersonian Library is one of the finest in Scotland, offering a wide range of law reports, legislation, serials and monographs. It’s well stocked with multiple-copy textbooks and current journals. You can also access a wide range of electronic information sources, from home, including all the major legal databases.
Friendly & approachable
Approachability is part of our appeal. Although the highest standards are set by us and expected of you, we’re a friendly and non-hierarchical School. We’re not an ‘ancient’ university, nor would we want to be. In our fifty years of educating tomorrow’s lawyers, what excites us is providing a quality of teaching and research that makes a difference to the world – today and tomorrow.
