Graduate Diploma in Law (CPE) - This is a two-year conversion course for anyone with a first degree in a discipline other than law. You will have the opportunity to progress to professional examinations or use the qualification to enhance your career in other areas.

The courses are taught by distance learning and include attendance at four residential weekends each year in Nottingham which will provide intensive face to face tuition. You will also be assigned to a subject tutor who will provide ongoing support by phone, fax, email and direct contact.

Both courses are designed for anyone who intends to become a solicitor or barrister and are qualified and recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council.

These courses are particularly appropriate for those working at all levels of the Police Service. There a currecntly a number of serving Police Officers on both courses who find that the teaching weekends and study pattern fit in well with work demands.
