If you don’t have a first degree in Law you can take a conversion course to enable you to pursue legal training to be a solicitor or barrister. At Exeter you can either apply for our accelerated qualifying law degree, the Graduate LLB, or for the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), which is taught on campus by the University of Law.
The Graduate LLB from the University of Exeter allows non-law graduates to undertake a two-year accelerated conversion programme which leads to a qualifying LLB law degree. It covers all the foundation subjects that are required to pass the Academic Stage of training that forms part of the professional qualification as a lawyer. The degree is vocation-facing, and most graduates pursue further training and a career in law after graduation.
Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)
The GDL from The University of Law, taught at University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus, is for graduates wanting to convert to law after completing a non-law undergraduate degree.
