Law

Meet the legal issues that face society today head on in our new Graduate Diploma in Law course. Our GDL is designed and taught by experienced lawyers and legal professionals; it will provide you with the necessary platform for the skills needed in the legal profession and will support your transition into your legal career from your previous subject discipline. This intensive one year full time course centres on 'practice-based' learning; it aims to develop your understanding of law in the context of everyday life and modern legal practice. This approach emphasises training in legal & transferrable skills and involving practitioners and ex-practitioners in your teaching and learning. You will have the opportunity to put law into action through engaging and optional work experience with the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB). Alongside our other pro-bono activities, you can apply for the CAB Gateway Programme that gives you experience in assisting and advising members of the public at a local CAB centre. IMPORTANT: Further information on the study of law: post-university training and routes to qualification Professional regulators in the legal sector are currently conducting an extensive consultation about legal education and training. This includes review about the routes and qualifications to become a solicitor or barrister. Some of the considerations include changing or ending existing routes, or opening new ones. We are informed that the current routes of a qualifying law degree or the GDL, and the BPTC to become a barrister will remain in place until at least summer 2017. The current route of a qualifying law degree or GDL and LPC will remain in place until at least summer 2018. The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board will make announcements after their consultations and reviews at the end of 2015. These decisions will then inform the different routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister. For further information please visit the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board.
