LLB Law and History
Joint programmes allow you to study law alongside another named academic discipline. Over four years of study you will take a range of courses from both the Law School and the School with which your programme is combined.
Studying a joint degree at Edinburgh provides you with wide-ranging academic foundations and a broader qualification to apply for postgraduate degrees or employment.
The History department at the University of Edinburgh is one of the largest and most diverse in the UK. The joint LLB in Law and History aims to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of the theory, concepts and rules of law.
The degree will also enable you to study a range of histories, deepening your knowledge of particular geographical regions, chronological periods, and themes.

Job Opportunity Potential
After graduating you can progress on to the legal profession in Scotland by completing the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice, followed by a traineeship with a legal firm, to qualify as a solicitor.
Please note however that this is only possible following a joint degree programme if you have been able to complete all additional courses required for the Diploma.
You can then opt to go to the Bar, to qualify as an advocate. This requires a period of 'devilling' under the supervision and direction of a practising advocate.
There are also opportunities for Scottish-qualified lawyers to practise in other jurisdictions.
Graduates who do not choose a legal career often use their skills and experience for employment in finance, management or journalism. Our graduates have also worked with international organisations such as the United Nations and (hitherto) the European Union.
