Course content

The PGDL enables a smooth transition into studying law whilst developing the skills you need to secure a training contract or pupillage. Non-law graduates are often in demand by recruiters, because they can offer transferable knowledge and skills that go beyond that of other candidates.

Our new Law Conversion Course (PGDL) has been developed following extensive research with firms, chambers and aspiring lawyers.

On our PGDL, you will learn like a lawyer from the outset, with teaching by experienced solicitors and barristers. Through highly interactive small group teaching sessions, we provide opportunities to apply your growing legal knowledge, professional capabilities and problem-solving skills.

Our approach is trusted by 60 leading law firms, who exclusively send their trainee solicitors to study our LPC.
