This is a law conversion course for graduates of any discipline who do not have an LLB awarded by a University in England and Wales; upon completion, students are eligible to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course if they want to qualify as a barrister, or the Legal Practice Course if they want to qualify as a solicitor; if the student does not intend to qualify as a solicitor or barrister, the GDL/CPE can also be a stepping stone into more advanced legal study at Master's level.
Modules include: legal skills and research; law of tort; law of contract; criminal law; constitutional and administrative law; law of the European Union; land Law; equity and trusts; independent project or American legal practice module..

The GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) is primarily aimed at non-law graduates, so a good Bachelor's degree is usually a minimum requirement. The Bachelor's degree must be conferred by a university in the UK or Ireland (see below for overseas qualifications). We normally look for a 2.2 classification or above, although we will consider applications from those who fall below this. There are exceptions made to the requirement for a Bachelor's degree for some legal executives and other mature applicants. However, you need to contact the Solicitors Regulation Authority (if you want to become a solicitor) or the Bar Standards Board (if you want to become a barrister) for them to make a decision about whether you would be eligible. If you are eligible to join the GDL they will issue you with a letter.
