Course summary

Overview

This accredited conversion course is for non-law graduates aiming for a professional career in law. It satisfies all the Common Professional Exam (CPE) requirements of the professional bodies: the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority. There are two alternative routes, both of which can lead to the additional award of LLM in Legal Studies.

Employability

This course can lead to one of many careers in law from a professional qualification as solicitor or barrister to a wide variety of careers in both public and private sectors. While our graduates may go on to join professional courses leading to qualification as a solicitor or barrister, the PgDip is also useful for numerous jobs that value skills in analysis, clear communication, efficient organisation and reasoned persuasion. This course is fully recognised by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) and Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and constitutes completion of the Academic Stage of Training for the purposes of further study on either the Legal Practice Course (for intending solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course (for intending barristers). Our LLM routes give added value over a regular CPE (GDL) course. Routes to the LLM require you to complete a supervised 15000 word dissertation.

Teaching and learning

The primary aims of the course are to ensure that you achieve a sound understanding of English law covered in the seven foundation subjects, providing a solid grasp of the structure and operation of the English legal system. Classes consist of a mixture of lectures and smaller group meetings where exam technique and problem solving approaches are practiced. The course is well supported by online materials and search resources, which can be accessed off-campus. You'll have free access to OUP Law TROVE to access books for all foundation subjects.

Students can also exit with PGDip Award.
