Governing Law

39.1  If, after the conclusion of all appropriate procedures under the applicable Regulation(s) for the determination of appeals or complaints or matters of discipline and after consideration by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman for Higher Education, a student still wishes to seek redress in respect of any claim or dispute (whether or not contractual) then proceedings may be brought. Such proceedings must be raised under Scots Law in the Scottish Courts. The submission to such jurisdiction shall not (and shall not be construed so as to) limit the right of the University to take proceedings against the student in any other Court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of proceedings in any one or more jurisdiction preclude the taking of proceedings by the University in any other jurisdiction, whether concurrently or not, to the extent permitted by the law of such other jurisdiction.
