Law (GDL)

The course is a conversion course which gives non-law graduates or those with an overseas law degree an opportunity to pursue a career in law. It provides a rigorous and challenging learning experience, which is commended by employers. On successful completion of the GDL, students can progress to the vocational stage of training - either the Legal Practice Course (LPC), for those wishing to become a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) for barristers. Our aim is to consolidate and enhance your intellectual capability for independent learning through legal research, reasoning and argument. You will acquire valuable transferable skills including oral/written communication, group-work, advocacy, interviewing and negotiation, critical thinking, e-presentation/data retrieval, and clinical/work-based practice. The GDL is a one year full-time course or two year part-time coursep; both courses are available on campus or by way of distance learning.
