Fast-track your legal career with our GDL law conversion course, your first step into law if you have already completed a non-law undergraduate degree. Read more

Our Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)

Fast-track your legal career with our GDL law conversion course, your first step into law if you have already completed a non-law undergraduate degree.

Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits.

Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.

With a clear focus on your future employability, we are more confident than ever in your success and offer our Employment Promise guaranteeing you a job within 9 months or 50% of your money back.

Why choose our GDL?

Here are just some of the reasons why we’re best placed to help you prepare for your future career as a solicitor or barrister:

‌•We’ve teamed up with leading law firms to design a course that encourages you to think like a lawyer from the start

‌•You’ll develop essential legal skills, and learn by experience through practical workshops and problem-based learning

‌•You’ll receive unrivalled face-to-face teaching and tutor support from qualified lawyers with practical experience; so you will know what to expect in real-life situations

‌•Our GDL is endorsed by leading law firms, and we're the preferred training provider to over 30 of them

‌•Flexible study options - choose to study full-time, part-time or via our supported online distance learning programme

‌•Get award winning careers support to help you stand out from the crowd as soon as you accept your place

Course Content

The practical application of the knowledge and skills learned in our lectures* and small group workshops, supported by our innovative online learning resources including recordings of live lectures, gives you the edge over other candidates in the competitive job market.

The course is divided into nine modules, made up of seven foundations subjects, a module at the start of the course providing insight into the profession and a self-study module enabling you to study an area of law that you would like to specialise in.

You'll start with our online pre-course study programme on legal method, designed specifically to prepare you for the GDL, so you're up to speed when you arrive.

Our online pre-course study programme in legal method is a compulsory and integral part of the GDL and must be completed before you start the course. It has been designed to allow you to work at your own pace and should take you approximately 50 hours to complete.

* for i-GDL students lectures will be made available as recordings

Ethics and Professional Legal Practice module

‌•This unique module taken at the start of the course includes:
‌•Insight into the different areas of the legal profession
‌•Consideration of the role of legal ethics within the profession
‌•Development of key legal skills and professional attributes required by lawyers

Foundation subjects

You’ll then study the seven key areas of law:

‌•Contract law

You’ll deal with how contracts are made, what happens when they work properly and the remedies available when they go wrong. You’ll look at contract issues which are relevant for both the consumer and business client. In practice, whether you are dealing with contracts in the corporate or commercial world you will be applying the basic principles of contract law that you cover on the course.

‌•Criminal law

You probably feel you already know something about criminal law. In fact, the detailed workings of crimes like corporate manslaughter are even more intricate and fascinating than you might have thought. On this course, you'll also grapple with ethical issues, such as whether taking another person's life can ever be justified or excused.
Equity and trusts

On this module you'll deal with: the making of gifts, the creation of trusts, the role of trustees in both the family and the wider commercial context, and the remedies against trustees who commit a breach of trust.

‌•European Union law

In EC law, you'll assess the impact that British membership of the European Community has had on the English legal system.

‌•Land law

You'll study the law relating to the ownership of land, the creation of rights over land such as rights of way and the impact those rights have on the current and future owners of the land.

‌•Public law

This module looks at the relationship between Parliament, the Government and the courts, and between the state and individual citizens. You’ll explore the most important aspects of this relationship, including the principles on which the UK constitution is based.

‌•Tort

Tort simply means ‘civil wrong’ and on this course you will study the various ways in which individuals or businesses seek a remedy (often in the form of compensation) for harm which they have suffered or become liable for damage which they have caused.

‌•Research project module
In this module you will plan, research and write an essay, tailored to reflect the area of law in which you intend to specialise. You will have time dedicated in your timetable to undertake this work and detailed guidance on both legal research and legal essay writing skills.

‌•Our part-time LPC allows you to complete the course within two years during the day, evening, or at weekends. The course blends self-study with either one full day a week, two evenings a week, or one full weekend, approximately twice a month. This means you can fit your study around existing work or other commitments and offers a choice of convenient study locations.

Please note: Students with a disability applying for a Disabled Students’ Allowance, please be advised that they are not eligible to apply for the full-time 6 months accelerated LPC.
