Scots law

The **Scots law** degree is the required degree for those planning to enter the Scottish legal profession. It is also an excellent foundation for students who wish to work in legal practice in other countries and in many other careers. The Scots law curriculum offers intellectual depth and has a range of flexible options.Glasgow School of Law has a hugely successful study abroad programme with more than 60% of students undertaking international mobility.There are many opportunities for you to study law with languages. A language may be studied for three years of the Honours degree (the Law with Legal Studies programme) or throughout the four years of the degree (the Law with Languages programme). During the first two years of the degree, language skills will be carefully developed. This will prepare you to make the most of the opportunity to increase your fluency in a foreign environment while advancing your knowledge of law. You will spend your third year studying Law in a partner university abroad, where teaching and learning take place in French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish. In the fourth year, students may continue to study language as an Honours subject and will graduate with a Law with Languages degree or concentrate solely on law subjects and graduate with a law with Legal Studies degree, for example, Law with French Legal Studies.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a small, general category covering several different subject areas - so bear that in mind when you look at any stats. The most common courses covered here are in translation, with just 55 students graduating in translation degrees in 2015. The arts were the most likely job sector for graduates from these courses, but it's a good idea to go to university open days to ask tutors more specific questions about what previous graduates typically went on to do with their degree.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
