About the course

The CPE/Graduate Diploma in Law programme has become an established and widely recognised route into both branches of the legal profession.

The Joint Academic Stage Board externally validates the programme, which is specifically designed to enable non-law graduates to satisfy the academic stage of the process of legal training, thereby enabling successful students to embark on a vocational training course with a view to entering the legal profession as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

Following successful completion of the diploma, students are eligible to progress to either the Legal Practice Course for solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course for those wishing to qualify at the Bar.

Brunel Law School is one of the few London Law Schools to offer this programme. The programme at Brunel allows students to take advantage of the extra-curricular activities and services available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students in the Law School, as well as benefitting from the forward thinking provided by the Law Schools Research Centres.

The programme is offered in 1-year full-time.

The programme covers the compulsory modules that constitute a qualifying Law degree (and therefore exemption from the academic stage of legal training) in an accelerated format.
