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.

Entry Requirements

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.
