The School of Law is situated in the University's beautiful Gilmorehill campus, located in the west end of Glasgow, 3 miles from the city center. In this bustling campus, you will find the University's grand main building as well as several research facilities.


Courses taken will be chosen in consultation with the Vice Dean for International and Graduate Programs and the current course offerings at Glasgow School of Law. It may be determined that some will count toward UB Law’s concentrations or program requirements, which will be determined by the Director of that Concentration or Program.

Student Performance & Grading

Grades earned during a student’s time abroad are accepted at the University at Buffalo School of Law. More information on assessment can be found at Glasgow’s website.

When UB Law students finish their studies a transcript is sent from the University of Glasgow, which is then translated by the UB Study Abroad Office and transferred to the University at Buffalo School of Law transcript. Course titles, credits and grades will transfer, up to 30 credits maximum. A grading scale can be provided upon request by the Office of Records, Registration, & Financial Aid.

Fees and Cancellation

Students continue to pay UB Law tuition, health insurance, and health service fees and will be billed through the usual UB process. The University of Glasgow may charge additional non-academic fees for things such as sports and wellness.

Glasgow School of Law reserves the right to cancel any course for reasons of insufficient student registration. Students will receive due notice to that effect. If changes are announced prior to a student's departure and the student is unable to identify satisfactory substitute courses, the student may choose to withdraw from the program. If cancellation occurs after a student has arrived in Glasgow, substitute courses must be selected and submitted for approval to the Office of Records, Registration, & Financial Aid.

Library and Research Services

The University of Glasgow Library is one of the oldest and largest university libraries in Europe, origins dating back to the 15th century. The Library houses over 1 million cataloged books and electronic access to millions of e-books, journal titles and legal research materials.

While at Glasgow, students will have access to skilled librarians who will provide research assistance for any assignment or project.
