The Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) offers intensive, graduate-level legal studies to students who already possess a degree in a non-law subject and wish to qualify as solicitors or barristers. Read more
The Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) offers intensive, graduate-level legal studies to students who already possess a degree in a non-law subject and wish to qualify as solicitors or barristers.

As the course is recognised by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority as satisfying the academic stage of legal training, the GDL allows a full-time student to complete this stage in one year (or two years part-time) instead of the two or three years normally required for a qualifying law degree.

After successful completion of the GDL, you may progress to the professional stage of legal training, either the Bar Professional Training Course or the Legal Practice Course, either of which may be studied at the School of Law and Politics.

To become fully qualified, completion of the BPTC or LPC will need to be followed by a period of work-based learning, either pupillage in a barristers’ chambers or a training contract with a solicitors’ firm. Alternatively, the GDL or one of the professional courses may be directly followed by legal work in some other capacity, with the option of seeking full qualification at a later date.

Distinctive features

The GDL is a very intensive course, but our model lets you combine your studies with other commitments. Apart from the first two weeks, you will only need to attend the School on Thursdays and Fridays (full time). The remainder of your time will be used for independent study, including listening to lectures, reading and preparing for tutorials.

All our tutorials are on site where you will have access to learning and pastoral support from your tutors. Most lectures are delivered electronically, so you can listen when most convenient for you but you will also have ample opportunities to see and speak to your tutors – this is not a distance learning course.

You will also benefit from pro bono opportunities, excellent career prospects and a full programme of talks and sessions to help you plan the next stage of your legal career.

After completing the GDL you can stay with us to carry out the LPC or BPTC course.

Course Overview

To understand global interconnectedness of economies, markets and industries within which transnational corporations compete, an individual would require a high degree of knowledge and understanding of the municipal, regional and international customs, practices and laws. Such an individual would also require a certain set of communication skills to draft, present, negotiate, moot and write in a disciplined way.

LLM International Business programme therefore aims to provide such knowledge and understanding as well as the skills to the students through an advanced study and assessment of laws within subject areas and issues that are rooted in the international business and management environment.

The programme is designed to equip students to develop the understanding of concepts and theories, stimulate critical thinking and resolve legal disputes from a multidisciplinary perspective. The programme also offers students the opportunity to reflect on their own knowledge, experience and industry practice, particularly through peer interaction.

See the website https://www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/management/courses/Pages/LLM-International-Business---Masters-in-Law-.aspx

Course Content

The programme comprises a number of compulsory and optional modules, which can be studied either on a one year full time or a two year part time basis. In total, students are required to successfully complete 180 credits to be awarded the degree of LLM International Business.

Compulsory modules (140 credits):

The programme consists of the following four pathways. Operation of certain pathways* and modules are subject to a minimum class size.

Learning & Teaching

The programme starts with an intensive week of law induction which will introduce students to the essential elements and principles of the English legal system, rule of law, ethics of learning law and skills needed to undertake legal studies at this advanced level. This induction is an essential component of the programme design due to the fact that most graduates entering the programme will be from a non-law background.

Formal delivery of the curricular material will be through a blend of weekly lectures, tutorials, seminars and workshops. Lectures and interactive seminars will be used to communicate core information setting out the framework in a particular topic, to develop themes and ideas and to encourage students to engage.

Weekly small group workshops known as seminars will require students to engage in intensive programmes of structured reading and research and to present their findings both orally and in writing.

There will be additional ad hoc skills training to enable students to acquire the intellectual skills necessary for postgraduate work including identifying and locating appropriate materials, critical and analytical reading, writing skills and conventions. Specifically, the skills training on concise formal argument based presentation, negotiation and mooting will be conducted.

Legal Research Skills and Reasoning module form the core of the learning and teaching methods above which will not only provide guidance on identifying a suitable research question, carrying out research, writing a literature review and planning and writing their dissertation, it will also enhance general legal research, organisation and presentational skills as well as develop capacity for advanced scholarship and opportunity for independent learning needed throughout the course.

The overall teaching strategy will allow students to devise research and execute sustained pieces of writing and research projects and to execute them under the supervision of a suitably qualified member of staff. Further, students will have gained disciplined approaches to research to enable them to undertake formal oral presentations, oral submissions of case, mooting and debate as well as negotiation which are thoroughly embedded as key application, problem-solving and transferable intellectual skills within the legal discipline.

All modules will be supported by Moodle VLE and students will be provided with a wide range of learning material and study guidance throughout the course of study. In addition, the university library service provides continuous training and support to students accessing legal databases, indexes and journals online. They also assist in obtaining paper-based materials and technical/IT assistance. At any given time, there are approximately 300 undergraduate students undertaking law modules within the School and thus the library staff are experienced in dealing with information skills specific to legal study.

- Minimum time commitment for study
Typical full time study will involve the taught modules being delivered across 3 terms starting in September and ending in June of the following year. From June students will undergo dissertation supervision which will then need to be completed before the end of August.

Thus for each taught module in each term the following is an indicator of the time commitment needed.
Each 20 credit taught module requires the students to attend to their studies by participating in group sessions for a minimum of 20 hours. In addition, there will be skills workshops and seminars​ to prepare for and attend. Students will also need to devote 180 hours per module as a minimum to undertake guided and self-initiated private study to achieve module milestones and outcomes as an independent learner especially in undertaking preparation work and completion of assessments.

Employability & Careers

The programme aims to equip individuals with the fundamentals of international business, through development of legal knowledge and skills, which will enable them to operate efficiently and lawfully as managers, entrepreneurs and specialist practitioners.

It provides disciplined legal context to individual's business knowledge and experience in meeting the demands placed upon them in a highly competitive global commercial environment. The programme therefore opens a broad range of enhanced employment opportunities in business, management and administration across private and public sectors, including NGOs and international organisations.​​

Previous graduates have entered multinational corporations as managers and administrators and indeed a few that were legally qualified before undertaking this programme have been able to enter into commercial chancery litigation and advisory practice area.
