Course summary

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.

Entry requirements

The GDL/CPE 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 at least a good lower 2nd Class Honours degree, although we 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.
