Course Summary

Our modular GDL enables students to immerse themselves fully in the law, in a short space of time. Unlike linear GDL programmes, where all subjects run together at the same time, our modular course structure is very similar to your first degree and is spread over two semesters, meaning you can actually 'bank' some exams in the first semester and therefore remove any excessive end of course assessment burden.

When you study the GDL with us you will:

  • Learn to think like a lawyer and develop practical legal skills through small group workshops and problem-based learning
  • Be ready to complete your legal training and go on to study the LPC or BPC
  • Explore an area of law that interests you via your own Research Project or our unique Law of Organisations module
  • Spread out your study and exams with our structured modular study pattern, so you can focus on key areas each semester and complete exams as you go, instead of all at the end of the year
  • Enjoy flexible study – choose to study full-time or part-time at one of our locations nationwide, or online
  • Receive access to our award-winning careers support to help you with your training contract and pupillage applications
  • Be taught by qualified lawyers, with lectures and practical workshops to develop your legal skills
