Course description

Also known as the Common Professional Exam, this is a one-year conversion course for non-law graduates or those who have a law degree from another country. You can fast-track your way to the next stage of legal training to become either a barrister or solicitor in England or Wales.

Teaching

You’ll attend seminars and be assessed by examination.

Overview

Studying the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) at Sheffield combines the academic skills found in a traditional postgraduate course with transferable skills essential for those seeking a career in the legal profession, and allows you to "convert" to law if you wish to enter the legal profession in England and Wales. The GDL is also known as the Common Professional Exam.

Careers

Successful completion of the GDL satisfies the academic stage of your legal training and allows you to progress on to the vocational stage, either the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Professional Training Course.

Following the LPC or BPTC, a period of compulsory work-based learning is required before qualifying as a solicitor or barrister; either pupillage in a barristers’ chambers or a training contract with a solicitors’ firm.

Graduates from the GDL also have the option to move on to work in the legal profession in some other capacity immediately after their studies, and look to qualify at a later date. A small number of students use the course to access Masters courses that require a background in law.

Whatever career path you choose, we have an in-house academic Employability Lead for the School who provides targeted careers support for students taking the course.
