If you are a non-law graduate looking to enter the legal profession, the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) provides your starting point for graduate legal study. It takes you through the academic stage required to become a barrister or solicitor, before you then go on to either the LLM in Advanced Legal Practice (LPC LLM) or or LLM Bar Training Course.
The GDL at UWE Bristol is highly regarded by both branches of the profession, and many solicitors and barristers choose this route, building on the knowledge they have obtained in another academic field to establish a successful legal career.
The part-time course provides exactly the same level of training as the full-time GDL but runs over two years instead of one.
As the first
Applicants should normally have one of the following: A non-law bachelor's degree, or; A 'stale' law degree, where seven or more years have elapsed since graduation, or; An academic or professional qualification at degree equivalent level.
If English is not your first language, you will also need to demonstrate your English Language proficiency. For exampe, you should have IELTS 7.5 overall with a minimum of 6.5 in all components.
A postgraduate qualification can give you a real advantage especially in today's competitive climate. At UWE Bristol we offer a wide variety of courses, so whether you're considering a career change, to consolidate your experience in a qualification or just need to get that professional qualification to take your career to the next level, we can offer you this.
