Timetable and Student Leaders


We run different programmes for 4 year LLB students, Graduate LLB students, and visiting Exchange students.

4 year LLB LawPALS sessions run in weeks 1-8 during autumn semester, from Monday to Thursday, 1310-1400. All first year students are divided into groups, and attend their sessions with a pair of student leaders from third and fourth years.

2 Year LLB LawPALS sessions run in weeks 1-7 during autumn semester, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1310-1400. Sessions are run by the diploma students that had just completed their Graduate LLB degree in Edinburgh Law School.

For exchange students, our sessions are run by the fourth year student leaders who had just returned from a year of studying abroad. Sessions run weeks 1-5 during autumn semester (September arrivals and those staying the full year); and weeks 1-5 during spring semester (January arrivals).

One of the lists below (depending whether you are a first year in 4 year LLB programme, 2 year Graduate programme, or and exchange student) will tell you where and when your sessions will take place, also who will be your student leaders:
