This course has been designed to allow students the opportunity to choose from a wide range of subjects. You will study alongside Masters (LLM) Students and may consider continuing to study the LLM, subject to meeting LLM entry requirements.
Students applying for this course will benefit from the option to tailor the Diploma to their own specific needs in terms of the modules they will select and the time those particular modules are offered.
The Professional Diploma in Law offers students a choice of modules from our Masters in Law (LLM) programmes, and lectures will be shared with LLM students. In essence, students will build their own unique Professional Diploma in Law, concentrating on the areas of law of most interest or relevance to them, i.e. Human Rights, IP & IT, Criminology & Criminal Justice, etc.
Upon completion of this Diploma, students may apply for the LLM programme, and for those who meet the entrance criteria for the LLM they may then be exempt from some of the LLM modules.
