Graduate Diploma in Law

The Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) is a full-time, 36-week, intensive course for non-law graduates, or those with appropriate professional qualifications, wishing to either enter the legal profession or work in law-relevant employment. No prior knowledge of law is required. The course is designed to facilitate the acquisition of sound legal knowledge in those areas of law which are known as the Foundations of Law, plus one additional area of legal study. Attaining a GDL qualification can also increase employability in a number of other areas where sound knowledge of the law is advantageous. Successful completion of the Swansea GDL, which is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the Bar Standards Board (BSB) and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX), satisfies all of the academic requirements for admission to the vocational stage of training as a solicitor, barrister or legal executive.
