Course summary

Overview

We pride ourselves on providing a quality law conversion course. The course combines academic rigour with the problem solving and research skills to help you stand out as a legal professional. You can study with us full-time (one year) or part-time (two years).

We’re known in the legal world for producing graduates that have both:

  • a thorough grasp of legal knowledge
  • the confidence to apply it to real-life situations.

Our classes are small and our teaching staff are supportive. They are passionate about the work and research they do, incorporating their published work into their specialist teaching. So you'll be able to experience an active engagement with the laws of the society in which we live, while you study.

You will develop employability skills and we have an outstanding record of student success in the following:

  • national mooting
  • international mooting
  • client interviewing competitions
  • solicitor mentoring scheme
  • barrister mentoring scheme.

You can participate in our solicitor and barrister mentoring or pro bono schemes.

Career prospects
