University of Westminster, London has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
This intensive course is designed for non-law graduates of any discipline, or overseas law graduates who wish to qualify as either barristers or solicitors. The course begins with a two-week introduction to the English legal system and the legal profession. You will then study the seven foundation subjects. If you successfully complete the course you will be eligible for entry on to the LLM in Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC). We have been successfully running this conversion course since 1977 and our students have taken a variety of first degrees at a wide range of universities. Our teaching team contains a rich mix of those who are professionally qualified and others who are active researchers. The course therefore provides a stimulating learning experience. This is reinforced by our small class sizes and the supportive atmosphere within the Westminster Law School.
Applicants should have a minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2:2). This course is open to non-Law graduates who wish to convert their existing degree to a law degree by completing the academic stage of legal training in one year. The full-time Graduate Diploma in Law Course, also known as the CPE, is open to graduates who have a non-law degree or those who have an equivalent qualification as well as mature entrants who are deemed eligible by the SRA. If your first language is not English you should have an IELTS 6.0 with at least 5.5 in each element. One academic reference is required.
