The GDL (also referred to as a Common Professional Examination, or CPE) is an ideal stepping stone into either a full-time law career or advanced legal study at Masters level. If you do not have an LLB awarded by a university of England and Wales, by completing this course you can then undertake the Bar Professional Training course or the Legal Practice Course, depending on whether you aspire to qualify as a barrister or a solicitor.

Upon completion, you are eligible to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course if you want to qualify as a barrister, or the Legal Practice Course if you want to qualify as a solicitor. If you do not intend to qualify as a solicitor or barrister, the GDL/CPE can also be a stepping stone into more advanced legal study at Master's level.

We have an established record of providing the GDL and have excellent links with Birmingham Law Society and professional practice in the area. We also have a successful LPC course, which our GDL students can progress to. Our innovative approach to legal education is demonstrated by our very successful American legal placement scheme and our active Student Mooting Society.

GDL/CPE courses at all institutions necessarily have a degree of similarity in content and assessment. However, the GDL/CPE at Birmingham City University focuses on supporting you to develop relevant legal skills as well as knowledge content and at the same time offers you a unique opportunity to apply for our US internship scheme*. Those who participate in the scheme will have the opportunity to work on 'real' cases with 'real' clients, combining the academic with the practical and will be able to gain academic credit for it at the same time.

We have active student-led Legal and Mooting Societies. Our Student Mooting Society is one of the most successful in England. Our students have reached numerous finals and semi-finals in the past few years and have regularly beaten teams from some of the country’s most prestigious universities. In the past 10 years, we have beaten eight of the elite Russell Group of universities, including Cambridge, Oxford, Nottingham, Leicester and Warwick.

As well as strategic partnerships with respected legal firms such as Irwin Mitchell and Squire Sanders, the School of Law also works closely with Birmingham Law Society and voluntary organisations in the legal sector such as local citizens advice bureaux and the Legal Ombudsman based in Birmingham city centre.

What's covered in the course?

With excellent links with Birmingham Law Society and professional practices in the area, this course provides you with the attributes and knowledge you’ll need to progress in the law field.

By choosing to study this course, you’ll be part of the School of Law, providing you with a wide range of activities and opportunities to gain valuable experience. Our Student Mooting Society is one of the most successful in the country – our students have regularly beaten some of the country’s most prestigious universities, including Cambridge.

You’ll also have the unique opportunity to undertake a US internship through our Centre for American Legal Studies, gaining practical experience in federal and public state defenders offices, private attorney offices and American university law schools.

You’ll be part of a friendly and inclusive learning environment, with regular access to friendly and supportive tutors, ensuring your individual study needs are met. You’ll be taught through face-to-face and online lectures, seminars, workshops, formative assessment and online multiple choice questions.

The course is accredited by the Joint Academic Stage Board, which represents the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board of England and Wales.

Why Choose Us?

-By being part of the School of Law, you’ll have the option to take part in a number of extracurricular activities, as well as being able to take advantage of the School’s close relationships with Citizens Advice Bureau, and Birmingham and Coventry Law Centres.
-The School has strong professional links with the Birmingham Law Society (the UK’s largest law society outside of London), the four Inns of Court and respected firms such as Squire Sanders LLP.
-Our courses are held in the University’s newest facility, The Curzon Building, ideally located on our City Centre Campus and containing a range of excellent resources.
-You’ll be able to take advantage of the School’s cutting-edge facilities, including two mock courtrooms that can be used to bring study to life.
-As the course has a smaller intake than others, you’ll receive proactive and attentive tutor support, ensuring you get the best out of your studies. Our team of staff have extensive experience, providing you with relevant and in-depth knowledge and information.
-If you complete the GDL and LPC with us, you’ll be awarded an LLB Legal Practice.

Course Structure

You’ll learn through a combination of guided self-study, face-to-face teaching sessions and an assessment scheme designed to help you learn, as well as assess your progress and achievement.

The first two weeks of the course will see you attend our induction sessions, helping you settle into University life and the course itself. You’ll then receive weekly lectures and attend fortnightly seminars, as well as workshop sessions on particular topics.

Employability

A GDL/CPE not only prepares you for a career in law, but also equips you with a range of transferrable skills, enabling you to enter a number of professions. Many of our graduates progress into roles as solicitors and barristers, while others pursue law-related careers in both the private and public sectors.

Many legal sector employers encourage applications from GDL/CPE students as often they have had more life and work experience than the average LLB graduate and can bring with them knowledge and skills from a different sector.

Our American Legal Placement module is designed to help you develop practical legal and professional skills in a completely different environment - something that really stands out on your CV that will help you secure a job in the legal or other professional sector

Modules

You'll study seven modules required by the professional bodies for students intending to apply for the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC):

Introduction to the English legal system
Law of the European Union
Obligations 1 (law of contract)
Obligations 2 (law of tort)
Public law
Land law
Criminal law
Equity and trusts
Project module
Dissertation (LLM only)

Assessment

Most modules are assessed by exams, exams plus coursework or presentations.

Award

x 8 modules = PgDip + CPE
x 8 modules and dissertation = LLM

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, which provides 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.

Employability

Solicitor or Barrister:

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 Diploma is also useful for numerous jobs that value skills in analysis, clear communication, efficient organisation and reasoned persuasion.

BSB and SRA:

This course is fully recognised by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority 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 (with additional entry requirements including an aptitude test and English language proficiency).

LLM Progression:

Unlike a Graduate Diploma in Law our PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE is a postgraduate level qualification. After successfully completing the course you'll accumulate sufficient postgraduate credits to be eligible to submit for the further award of LLM by dissertation.

The LLM is an optional qualification additional to your Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Studies. To obtain the LLM you must successfully complete a supervised 15,000 word dissertation for which preparation has already been undertaken by your successful completion of the project module forming part of the programme leading to the PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE. The Masters dissertation is usually submitted in the semester following completion of the PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE. You'll not be required to attend classes when researching and writing your dissertation and you'll therefore be able to enrol on the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course in the September following the successful completion of the PgDip in Legal Studies.

The CPE (Common Professional Examination) Graduate Diploma course is designed to enable non-law graduates to reach the same
level as law graduates for the purposes of professional qualification to practice law. It fulfils the requirements of the Law Society for the
academic stage of qualification.

CPE students who pass the course are guaranteed a place to study for the LPC (Legal Practice Course) at Staffordshire University or one of the sites offered by the College of Law.

The course will be open to graduates who do not hold a qualifying degree in Law, but who wish to become solicitors or barristers. The course is designed to satisfy the academic stage of professional legal education. The overall aim is to provide the students with an intensive legal education which, taking into account their transferable postgraduate skills and expertise, will maintain the standard of academic work and examination provided on the first degree programme. Accordingly, it is intended that the Diploma will provide non-law graduates with a further and valuable academic qualification as well as offering an alternative method of completing the Professional Bodies’ academic stage of training. The course is also intended to offer a recognised qualification even for those who do not ultimately enter the legal profession.

Overview

The Master of Science program in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University, Copenhagen is directed at students with a bachelor’s degree in surveying, land management, urban planning, environmental planning, geography or study programs with similar contents interested in understanding the concepts and obtaining the necessary skills to manage various kinds of digital geographic information. Basic knowledge about geographic information and information technology is required for enrolment but we will take you further and disseminate spatial information to build computer based representations of the real world leading to development of technologies and methods for planners and resource managers.

Thus our goal is to introduce graduate students to the potentials of modern geographic information technology to strengthen their professional approach to solving real world problems in their specific field of interest. Based on traditional problem based learning methods, the students will be introduced to geoinformatics by participating in project works (50%) and course works (50%). Approximately half of the courses will be examined individually with a dedicated curriculum. The rest are given as a supplement to the project oriented work being evaluated through the project.

It takes two years to attain a master degree in Geoinformatics, and during this time you will meet a wide range of teachers who will present you with new knowledge in key areas.

The educational programme is internationally oriented, and attracts Danish as well as international students. Furthermore the educational programme offers the opportunity of an internship or/and an external study as well as study trips inside and outside Denmark during the 3rd semester.
