Law

This course provides a focused route of study for non law graduates to enter the legal profession by allowing those who wish to qualify as barristers or solicitors to complete the academic stage of training without having studied an undergraduate law course. The course also satisfies the requirements of Joint Academic Stage Board (JASB). The course is primarily intended to prepare students for a successful transition onto the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Vocational Course (BVC), but is also of significant value for those considering alternative career options, where an appreciation and understanding of the legal system and basic lawyer skills would prove valuable. Additionally, the credits achieved (along with further study) may qualify the students to study at Master's level. The full-time course is structured into 2 teaching blocks and covers the 7 foundations of legal knowledge, identified by professional legal bodies. An independent research project then enables another area of legal study to be covered in-depth. All modules studied during the Graduate Diploma in Law are compulsory and represent the aspects of law that are most relevant in legal practice. These modules are divided between the teaching blocks.
