Course content

The Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies is an intensive one year course designed to allow non-law graduates to 'convert' to a law path. Following successful completion of the Diploma, you will be eligible to progress to either the Legal Practice Course for solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course for those wishing to qualify at the bar.

This intensive programme introduces you to the legal skills necessary for the study of law, as well as providing you with an understanding of the methods and processes of the English Legal System. The programme is designed to assist you to "think like a lawyer".
