The GDL, or CPE, is a conversion course which gives non-law graduates or those with an overseas law degree an opportunity to pursue a career in law. It provides the academic stage of legal training. On successful completion of the GDL students can progress to the vocational stage of training - either the Legal Practice Course, LPC, for those wishing to become a solicitor or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) for barristers. The aim of the course is to offer the student an opportunity for intellectual development and to provide an academically rigorous education in law.
Applicants must hold a degree in any subject from a UK or Republic of Ireland Higher Education Institution. Non-graduate applicants, or those who have obtained their undergraduate degree from an overseas institution, are required to obtain a Certificate of Academic Standing from one of the professional bodies: The Solicitors Regulation Authority, The Bar Standards Board
