At Robert Gordon University our law degrees offer a balance of the practical and the academic - backed up by professional accreditation and the benefit of our national and international connections.

Small class sizes ensure close student-staff contact and we reap the benefits of being integral to one of the largest business schools in the UK.  A range of practical honours options offer the chance to specialise later in the undergraduate course. Niche and general subjects are then available at postgraduate level to enable students to pursue their own interests.

The chance to take part in ‘mooting' (mock legal debates) and other competitions build valuable practical skills. We also offer exciting opportunities to study abroad, both in Europe and the US.

Passion

RGU law staff are highly experienced in both teaching and research.

Our experience in teaching and research is a factor that drives all our courses to offer a broad view of the legal profession in both corporate and public sectors.

Practical skills in new modules such as advocacy, letter writing and contract drafting are complemented by non-law modules to provide a broader range of study.
