Cardiff Law School

Cardiff University


This taught course offers intensive, graduate level legal studies to students who already possess a degree in a non law subject and wish to qualify as solicitors or barristers. As the course is recognised by the Joint Academic Stage Board (representing the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors' Regulation Authority) as satisfying the academic stage of legal training, the GDL allows a full time student to complete this stage in 1 year (or 2 years part time) instead of the 2 or 3 years normally required for a qualifying law degree.
