About this course
The Law CPE is a conversion course that enables graduates in any non-law subject to convert to a career in law. You can take the course at the end of your degree or use it as a bridge from one graduate career to another.
The course provides you with a sound knowledge of:
- the English legal system and process
- those areas of law considered to be fundamental
- at least one specialist area of legal study, which you will cover in an individual project.
You will develop practical skills in legal research, problem-solving, critical analysis and communication. Classes are taught in small groups of exclusively postgraduate law students by enthusiastic, expert lecturers who are committed to research and teaching excellence.
Degree and/or experience:
- You must have obtained an undergraduate degree awarded by a recognised UK or Republic of Ireland institution (at least II(ii) standard if you wish to qualify as a barrister). This does not include foundation degrees.
- Applicants with non-standard UK degrees or qualifications obtained overseas may need to obtain a Certificate of Academic Standing. Prospective barristers should obtain the certificate from the Bar Standards Board.
English Language Requirement:
- If English is not your first language, you will need English language proficiency equivalent to IELTS minimum 6.5 overall with 6.0 in the written test and a minimum of 5.5 in the other elements.
