Law with options in Music at Aberdeen gives you all the benefits of our trademark quality at Aberdeen Law School – ranked 12th out of 90 in the UK, in the top five for graduate prospects and with 95% student satisfaction – with the opportunity to learn, compose and perform with world-renowned composers and musicologists, working in all genres, styles, instruments and periods of music. Law at Aberdeen looks at the historical, social, political and economic forces that influence our legal systems and govern our societies. You will learn to think like a lawyer rather than just 'learn' law. A major factor in our quality is the calibre and enthusiasm of our staff, testing your mental agility with complex, realistic legal scenarios as you get to grips with criminal, public and private law, legal systems, contracts, human rights and explore family law, the law of property and legal aspects of the EU. You will also have lots of opportunity to hone your developing legal skills in student-led initiatives such as mock legal debating, our highly active Law Society, the students’ journal, in which your work may be published, and our community law clinic – the Aberdeen Law Project. Throughout your study, you will be able to develop your passion for music and your skills in your instrument through courses in music performance taught by established and up-and-coming musicians and composers working in all genres and periods of music. Should you choose to practice law, you will have a wide variety of career options within legal professions. However, more than a third of Aberdeen law graduates now choose to use their law degree as a passport for entry into a wide range of careers including business, media, finance and banking, teaching (which may include music), governmental bodies and departments and the police force.
