Course content

This diploma programme is an exciting first step for non-law graduates looking to learn about the law, or for those wishing to enhance their existing career by acquiring further legal knowledge and skills. It is taught by the research-active academics based in our prestigious Law School who will introduce you to their specialisms in International Law, International Relations, Human Rights Law, International Terrorism and the Law, and International Business and Corporate Law.

The PGDip is your chance to study a wide range of legal, jurisprudential and socio-legal issues, which are of global significance. It is also an opportunity to engage with teaching staff who are working at the forefront of legal research.

Our Law School is home to the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, the Centre for Law and Society, and the Centre for Child and Family Justice; these influential centres underpin our postgraduate teaching, which is research-led and research-informed.

Our teaching approach is international in scope and comparative by nature, and we actively encourage you to build a beneficial network of academics, peers and alumni during your time with us. All of this will help you to broaden your experience, deepen your understanding, and prepare for your next step.

You will study modules from the taught elements of our full LLM programmes, but will not submit a dissertation. This means you have the opportunity to study the core and optional modules from any of our LLM specialisms to suit your own development needs. We pride ourselves on the choice and breadth of the modules available, offering you access to sought-after expertise in highly-relevant, high-demand areas such as Intellectual Property Law, European Union Law, and International Environmental Law.

The PGDip is an exciting first step for non-law graduates looking to join the legal profession or those wishing to enhance their existing career by acquiring legal knowledge and skills. You will develop the skills required to critically evaluate research relating to issues of global significance; those skills are highly prized by employers in both the public and private sectors. You will also enhance your ability to analyse and communicate key information in a variety of formats, which is a real boost to employability. The PGDip also provides a bridge to higher level legal study and academia.
