Dual Qualifying Law Degree

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I have a week left to decide which offer to accept for uni, but I'm unsure which to pick.

    I'll be studying Law at a Scottish university so my degree will obviously be Scots Law, however I also have an offer for a Dual Qualifying (Scots & English) degree at Strathclyde. I'm wondering if this is worth it? I've always liked the idea of having a choice of jurisdictions to go into. I understand Scottish degree holders can do the GDL anyway if they wish to work in England, however this takes an additional year. Strathclyde wasn't exactly my first choice but it seems it would be much more practical to go there and save time by avoiding the GDL.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Yoy have to make your mind up about whether you wnat that option in future. Dont know about scottish finance, but you might also need to consider the additional cost of the GDL. Cpuld you be happy at Stratclyde or prefer the original? Its a personal choice.
