Graduate Diploma in Law
Our GDL enables you as a non-law graduate to progress with confidence to the LPC/BTC, and is supported by a dedicated team of tutors who understand the demands of the GDL route. Teaching is not shared with undergraduates. The curriculum is divided into two teaching blocks with assessments after each block, which greatly assists our students in managing workload. Tuition will develop you for the demands of the legal profession, equipping you with the necessary legal skills to thoroughly apply the law to a set of facts and the ability to solve legal problems.
LLM Advanced Legal Practice (LPC)
Whether you are intending to practise in a commercial or high street firm, the practical, wide- ranging Legal Practice Course will provide the broad and rigorous foundation you need to be ‘practice ready’ for a career in Law. Our LPC is the longest established in Bristol and the region with a reputation of the highest quality.
Workshop teaching happens in small, interactive groups with an emphasis on intensive, personal tuition. Here, you will learn by doing within a supportive, friendly environment, developing the skills and knowledge to excel in your role as a solicitor. You will benefit from flexible modes of study and a choice of timetabling options. There are strong links to local and regional practice, including a new mentoring scheme for LPC and GDL students.
LLM Bar Training Course (BTC)
With its reputation for teaching excellence, high levels of student satisfaction and outstanding pastoral care, our BTC will equip you with key skills to excel in practice. There are exceptional links with the local Bar including participation in mock pupillage interviews, chambers sponsored advocacy and mooting competitions annually and an additional Western Circuit sponsored advocacy prize. You will also have the opportunity to become an accredited civil commercial mediator.
