Entry requirements

You will normally have, or be predicted to have, a second class degree or above and your application should also demonstrate a commitment to the legal profession.

However, all applications are considered on their merits and we will consider applicants who do not have or may not be predicted to have an upper second class honours degree who can demonstrate a commitment to pursuing a career in the legal profession and who have other strengths or evidence of achievement such as awards, scholarships and work experience - paid or unpaid.

A Certificate of Academic Standing is required for applicants whose intention it is to become a barrister and who do not hold a UK first Degree.

Course content

Becoming a lawyer involves so much more than simply studying the law and gaining a qualification. In order to succeed in practice you must learn to think like a lawyer and reason like a judge. That’s where we come in. We pride ourselves on providing a quality law conversion course. The course combines academic rigour with the problem solving and research skills that we know will make you stand out as a legal professional.

Our classes are small and our teaching staff are supportive, and that’s what we think makes all the difference. We’re known in the legal world for producing graduates that have both a thorough grasp of legal knowledge and the confidence to apply it to real-life situations.

You can study with us full-time (one year) or part-time (two years). Either way you will be fully integrated into our supportive learning environment and benefit from the coaching of our highly qualified and experienced teaching team.

You will be taught by academic staff who are passionate about the work and research they do. They incorporate their published work into their specialist teaching, so that as you study with us you will be able to experience an active engagement with the laws of the society in which we live.

Additionally, we understand the importance of giving our students every opportunity to develop employability skills prior to graduating. This is demonstrated through our outstanding record of student success in national and international mooting and client interviewing competitions, as well as through our solicitor and barrister mentoring scheme.
