Program Description:

Aims of the course This is an intensive postgraduate conversion course designed for graduates in subjects other than law who wish to qualify to take either the Legal Practice Course (to become solicitors) or the Bar Vocational Course (to become barristers). The course aims to develop an understanding of the English legal system, to provide a thorough grounding in the foundations of legal knowledge and to train you in the professional skills of legal research, analysis and presentation in a friendly and nurturing environment. You may choose your own title for your research dissertation, subject to approval, which gives you the early opportunity to specialise in an area of particular interest to you. Entry requirements Applicants must normally possess a degree with at least second class Honours, or equivalent, and must provide a satisfactory reference from either their university or employer. Applicants who do not hold a UK first degree must obtain a Certificate of Academic Standing from either the Solicitors Regulation Authority (Tel: 01527 517141) or the General Council of the Bar (Tel: 020 7440 4000).
