Course content

Get on the case with our modular Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).

Our modular GDL spreads the workload for a better paced approach.

Enables students to immerse themselves fully in the law in a short space of time.

Here are just some of the reasons why our GDL is best placed to help you prepare for your future legal career:

A better paced programme

Our GDL makes it manageable to learn vast amounts of law in a very short space of time.

Immersive learning with no excessive end of course assessments

Unlike linear GDL programmes, where all subjects run together at the same time, our course structure is spread over two semesters, meaning you can actually 'bank' some exams in the first semester and therefore remove any excessive end of course assessment burden.

Teaching by qualified lawyers

All of our tutors are qualified practitioners who bring their experience of practice into the classroom.
