LAW undergraduates at Aberdeen University are to be given the choice of continuing their studies and training in Scotland or England and Wales in a groundbreaking initiative.
The university announced today that the institution’s Law School is now offering an LLB Law with English Law degree which would be “unique in offering this dual opportunity.”
A university spokeswoman said: “The new programme allows students at Aberdeen the opportunity to study law more widely as well as giving them more options as they consider their future careers.
“The degree is fully accredited by the Law Society of Scotland and validated by the Joint Academic Standards Board of England and Wales of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board.”
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.”
