Course content

All legal professionals need to keep their generic skills and knowledge up to date and can benefit from participating in the range of CPD activities and resources provided by the School of Law and Politics.

All CPD modules are fully verified by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority as well as other relevant professional organisations. Modules are open to all legal professionals, but also those from other backgrounds relevant to the modules that they wish to pursue.

Modules are normally taught over 10 weeks through a mixture of directed and online learning. Directed learning takes place at weekly 2-3 hour sessions at the School of Law and Politics, conveniently situated in Cathays Park in central Cardiff.

On successful completion of each module students receive a School of Law and Politics CPD Award worth 30 credits at M level. Credits may be accumulated and count towards an LLM award should students decide to further their study and apply to one of our popular LLM routes.
