Course content

Glasgow Caledonian is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a provider of the LLB, Bachelor of Laws which, together with other education and training, is the main route to qualification as a solicitor.

As one of a small group to enter the LLB you will obtain your degree in a supportive and friendly learning environment

The main aim of the programme is to provide a fundamental knowledge and understanding of the principal features of the legal system and law of Scotland. The degree develops students intellectual, personal and key skills to enable them to develop as independent, articulate and reflective individuals. The degree has been designed to fulfill the requirements of the Law Society of Scotland.

The structure of the Full Time Fast Track Degree allows you to complete the Unclassified Degree in 2 years and is for Graduate entrants only.

Many LLB graduates seek entry to the Diploma in Legal Practice, the next stage for those who wish ultimately to qualify as a solicitor in Scotland. However, increasing numbers of graduates now take up positions in business and the public sector.
