The Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies is an intensive one year course designed to allow non-law graduates to 'convert' to a law path. Following successful completion of the Diploma, you will be eligible to progress to either the Legal Practice Course for solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course for those wishing to qualify at the bar.
This intensive programme introduces you to the legal skills necessary for the study of law, as well as providing you with an understanding of the methods and processes of the English Legal System. The programme is designed to assist you to "think like a lawyer".
Pre-Sessional Induction Programme
The course commences two weeks prior to the start of the autumn semester with an induction programme starting on Monday 8 September 2014. Please note that you must attend the induction programme and pass a short piece of coursework in order to enter the Diploma course.
Our Graduate Diploma is accredited for the purposes of solicitors' and barristers' academic stage requirements.
