Overview

The Law School at Strathclyde is one of Scotland’s leading providers of legal education. We are home to the country’s biggest student-run law clinic, which offers a unique, real-world, learning environment, and to Ardcalloch, a virtual community where the legal issues of everyday life are played out.

With more than 300 million native speakers, Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the world. 

Studying Law with Spanish at the University of Strathclyde will give you the chance to become a fluent linguist and, with our year abroad programme, an opportunity to experience living, working and/or studying in another country.

All of our LLB graduates satisfy the professional requirements of the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates to proceed to the post-degree stages of professional training required to become a practising lawyer in Scotland. 

Careers

Most Strathclyde LLB graduates enter the legal profession after completing the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice and a two-year traineeship in a law firm.

The single European market and the mutual recognition of legal qualifications in the EU member states allows lawyers to practise their profession outside their national jurisdictions (often on completion of a short conversion course) and Law with a Modern Language graduates are well-placed to work professionally in the country of the language they have studied.

Knowledge of the law, legal system and language of at least one other EU member state greatly enhances career opportunities in the fields of industry, commerce, banking and accountancy, central and local government.

A 2013 survey by Obelisk Legal Support Solutions looked at the language skills of 2,930 registered in-house lawyers for the UK operations of the FTSE 250 companies. Of those, nearly a quarter also speak a foreign language, while a total of 65 different languages are spoken across the FTSE 250. In addition, the top three languages spoken are Europe-centric, with French leading the way on 405 speakers.
