Induction

Welcome to the Law School

Welcome to the 2023/24 academic year. We are delighted to welcome you as a new undergraduate student at Edinburgh Law School and we hope you find your studies stimulating, rewarding and enjoyable!

As a new student to the School, there is a lot of advice and guidance available to help you settle in and make the most of your studies. We have included some of the most relevant advice for you below.

Getting Started

You must complete the “Top 6 Tasks” before you start and during your first week.

The University of Edinburgh Events app is an easy way for you to browse all of the information and events for new students throughout your first year. Follow the link to download: University of Edinburgh Events App. Please check the app regularly for new events.

Induction & Welcome Week

Welcome Week is the start of your time at Edinburgh. Welcome Week is more than just introducing you to your School, it is also about getting to know your new home, getting to know fellow students and trying out new things. The Law School has planned a comprehensive induction programme so please do download the app and find out what events are available for you to attend. There will be a range of live sessions for you to attend, alongside additional resources and activities for you to access and work through at your leisure.

PreparED

Now in its third year, PreparED is designed to demystify the LLB, and provides resources to help you succeed at every stage. Visit www.prepared.law.ed.ac.uk to access material on Getting into the LLB Zone, Preparing for Lectures, Making the Most of Tutorials and to find out more about that dreaded word… plagiarism.
