Robert Gordon University launches Law School
Robert Gordon University's (RGU) Department of Law has achieved a new status as The Law School.
RGU has been teaching law in Aberdeen for many years and now offers broad range of law courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
The Head of the Law School Professor Ken Mackinnon said: “The law staff have worked hard over the years to build up the law programmes here to achieve not only professional standing in the UK, but a strong reputation internationally."
The Law and Management degree has been joined by the LLB (Hons) degree. Students can also take an online LLB at RGU using recorded lectures posted on the internet alongside live virtual tutorials.
At postgraduate level, courses in International Commercial Law, Oil and Gas Law, Construction Law and Arbitration, Employment Law and Practice, Mediation, and Professional Legal Practice are available on campus or online.
Another expansion of The Law School is the introduction of a post graduate certificate in mediation – an increasingly sought after skill among lawyers, employers and other professionals. It is taught online with some intensive sessions on campus where students can test their mediation skills.
