Graduate Diploma in Law/Common Professional Examination (GDL/CPE)
Applicants must hold a degree in any subject from a UK or Republic of Ireland Higher Education Institution or a Certificate of Academic Standing from the Solicitors Regulation Authority or the Bar Standards Board (please see the useful contacts page at the back of this brochure). The Certificate of Academic Standing must be obtained by the applicant before the start of the programme and must be shown to us at enrolment.
Applicants who have previously studied four or more of the foundation subjects may obtain an exemption from those subjects. If you are granted a certificate of exemption, the certificate must be shown to us at enrolment. Applications for exemption should be made to the Solicitors Regulation Authority or the Bar Standards Board. Please note that students with exemptions who pass the outstanding subjects will pass the programme, but will not generally be awarded the Diploma.
