PGDip Laws

Course Description


A wide range of subjects are available for study within the general Diploma in Law programme, allowing specialisation in a field of your choosing. The programme focuses on high-level learning on specific issues of current professional and commercial significance, and draws on the strengths of School of Law staff, visiting lecturers and practitioners.

The programme is particularly suitable for professionals who seek education and training in specialist fields of law.

If you wish to specialise in Comparative and International Dispute Resolution you must register for the specific PG Diploma in International Dispute Resolution-Arbitration or PG Diploma in International Dispute Resolution-Mediation.

This programme will:

◦Allow you to specialise in an area of your choosing.
◦Provide a conceptual overview of the subject and allow in depth discussion and debate about topical and controversial issues.
◦Enable you to learn from, engage and network with academics and practitioners who are leading experts in their field.
◦Allow you to enhance your existing knowledge while you are in full-time employment.


Programme Outline
You must complete two taught modules, plus one 10,000 word dissertation over a two-year period. Students normally attend one taught module in their first year and then take a second module and submit their dissertation in their second year. Taught modules for a general Diploma may be selected from any of the wide range of modules offered to LLM students.

If you want your Diploma award to carry a specialisation (eg PG Diploma in Tax Law or PG Diploma in Medical Law) you must select both your taught courses and your dissertation topic from within the same area of law as the study programmes on the LLM.

If you want to specialise in International Dispute Resolution you must apply for the Postgraduate Diploma in International Dispute Resolution.
