The CPE programme has become an established and widely recognised route into both branches of the legal profession.
The Joint Academic Stage Board externally validates the programme, which is specifically designed to enable non-law graduates to satisfy the academic stage of the process of legal training, thereby enabling successful students to embark on a vocational training course with a view to entering the legal profession as a solicitor or barrister.
The programme covers the core modules that constitute a qualifying Law degree (and therefore exemption from the academic stage of legal training) in an accelerated one-year format.
Brunel Law School is one of the only University Law School's to offer this programme
