The best resources that exist are the St Andrews Law Society itself and the St Andrews Career Centre. Feel free to reach out to us on our Connect Tab at the top, or to the Careers Centre. Paul Brown and Shona Mach at the Careers Centre are great sources of information and are always helpful.

Furthermore, this year the Law Society is working with the School of History’s Institute of Legal and Constitutional Research. The Institute is the home of outstanding cross-disciplinary research in the fields of law, legal history and constitutionalism at the University of St Andrews. The Institute sponsors and co-ordinates a wide calendar of academic events, cultivating dialogue and collaboration across a global network, of which a number are open to the public. To learn more about the Institute, please visit their website or contact

Also, we recommend our friends over at LawCareers.Net: "a one-stop, comprehensive, essential resource designed to assist you in your search for a legal career.
