However, you may also elect to combine it with one of six other programs, turning it into a Combined Honours Degree, and making your employability within your chosen field that much better.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market.
