Modular Structure 

Our GDL is modular. This means that you complete the exam at the end each semester while the information is still fresh in your mind, similar to how you might have done for your undergraduate degree.

Our routes to law 

Our GDL allows you to progress onto our Legal Practice Course (LPC) to become a solicitor, or our Bar Practice Course (BPC), to become a barrister. For both of these courses you’ll benefit from our excellent employment rates and unparalleled levels of teaching.
