Programme Overview

The Graduate Diploma in Commercial Law is a flexible programme aimed at those who wish to gain some knowledge in expertise in English commercial law to enhance their existing qualifications. The Graduate Diploma in Commercial Law is a qualification in its own right, designed to offer focused specialisation in aspects relevant to commercial law and practise for students who are eligible for admission to the LLB but who do not wish to register for the full degree, or require a bridging qualification for entry into postgraduate study on, for example, LLM.

This qualification is for you if:

  • You have the ability, motivation and self-discipline to study at degree level but do not want to commit to a full LLB programme.
  • You would like to enhance key skills of communication, information literacy, analysis and argument.
  • You want the flexibility to pace your studies to fit in with your other commitments.
  • You want to develop specialist subject knowledge in the area of commercial law.
  • Please note that the programme is not a Graduate Diploma in Law and does not offer a Graduate Entry pathway to a Qualifying Law Degree.
