Our virtual community & learning environment

The background to much of our practical work is the award- winning ‘virtual’ community of Ardcalloch. Ardcalloch is a town we’ve created. A wide variety of events take place in the town which give rise to legal issues of one kind or another for its citizens. This initiative has a world- wide reputation in legal education.

All these activities are conducted on and supported by the SIMPLE (Simulated Professional Learning Environment) IT process. This allows student firms to interact with clients, fellow firms and other simulated characters throughout a real transaction.

We have standardised clients who are specially trained ‘clients’ who assess and give feedback to you on your performance of legal skills.

Most of our electives involve active participation such as:

  • students conducting Employment Tribunal hearings before real Tribunal judges
  • conducting a criminal trial in the Sheriff Court
  • having client meetings in the negotiation of family disputes

One of the most positive aspects of the course is the opportunity provided to meet both fellow students and tutors. They’ll become fellow practitioners, and your paths will cross regularly during your working life in this relatively small legal jurisdiction.

What do students think of the learning & training they receive?

Here’s a few comments from our graduates:

"I think the firm concept works very well and I cannot speak highly enough of their use as a learning tool."

"The method of teaching is very effective. The firm work allows for us to make any mistakes in a safe environment and prepare us for our traineeships. "

"The teaching approach is very unique. Students have hands on approach to learning. The firm experience was very efficient in promoting good work. The general experience is one of a kind."
