LLB Bachelor of Laws with Risk


This programme, the first of its kind in Scotland, has been developed in response to the growth of legal regulation across all sectors, and the corresponding need for business organisations to meet their compliance requirements.

Recent events, including the global financial crisis and more recently the ‘Brexit’ vote, have highlighted the uncertain and expanding range and degree of risk facing business, and so have highlighted the need for expertise on business and legal risk. Thus, there is an increasing expectation on lawyers to be pro-active in the prediction and prevention of unethical as well as unlawful behaviour across all areas of society.

The main aim of the programme, accredited by the Law Society of Scotland, is to equip you with the legal knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary to a career in the provision of business and legal risk-focused expertise, either as an independent solicitor, a lawyer or as a risk professional within an organisation.

A graduate with LLB and Risk would stand out in the recruitment process. It offers a unique experience when compared with other law graduates, as even in larger organisations with considerable in-house legal teams, there is often a requirement for compliance/regulatory specialists and the LLB (Hons) with Risk would offer expertise that many other law graduates may not have.
