    Course Summary

    This is very much a bespoke law degree program. You will be able to select from among more than 45 different modules over three terms of study, and can explore one or more areas of the law and related disciplines which appeal to your interests and your intended specialty of practice. Some combinations may be difficult or impossible to manage, but timetables permitting, no combination of modules is completely ‘off the table’.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. 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. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This is a one year program, delivered across three terms.

    Terms 1 and 2:

    Your first two terms will see you taking a total of 120 credits of advanced law modules. You will have a free hand in selecting modules, but you should start with a dissertation topic in mind from the very beginning, and choose modules that will contribute to and inform that project.

    Term 3:

    Your final 60 credits will come from your dissertation itself. You won’t be completely on your own in crafting your dissertation, though. You will receive extensive academic guidance, including access to advanced workshops and one-on-one advice and support

    Assessment methods:

    Each module will vary, depending on its nature and the techniques preferred by its presenter. Assessment will typically be by essay, examination, or a combination of both methods.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Nottingham’s Law School advocates a focus on smaller groups for advanced degree study, preferring seminars and workshops to large lecture classes. Throughout your two study terms, you’ll have access to time management workshops, one-on-one legal skills advice, and guidance on exam taking techniques. Similar support will continue on throughout your dissertation term as well.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree has historically led graduates to many, wide-ranging career paths. Many do embark on legal careers, or return to their previous legal roles with the advantage of much more advanced skills.

    Others continue their academic development with a PhD program at Nottingham or elsewhere. Some have then stayed on as members of staff.

    Of those graduates of the Nottingham School of law who were both eligible for and seeking employment, just under 97% found appropriate roles within 6 months of graduation. Their average salary was more than £23,000 per year. Much of this extraordinary placement rate is attributable to the university’s world class Careers and Employability Service, who can be of great help to graduates when planning their near and far future careers.

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU Students:

    Applicants must have achieved a prior degree at a 2:1 standard or higher in either Law, the Humanities or a Social Science.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non EU)students:

    Non-EU students from overseas are welcome to apply for this program. They must demonstrate academic certification that is at least equivalent to that required for UK and EU students.

    They must also pass English language test such as the IELTS. They must have achieved an overall score of 7.0, and at least 7.0 in each indivudual tested element (or the equivalent).
