Study a Diploma in Law: Applications open for September 2022 intake


The Diploma Centre’s Diploma in Law is now accepting applications for its 2022 offering.

Diploma Centre Law Society

Starting on 2 September, this well-established course offers great flexibility (one- and two-year study options are available) and innovative use of technology to facilitate the attendance of those working full-time.

The course is specifically aimed at non-legal graduates or professionals seeking a greater knowledge of the law, professionals who would like to gain new skills and, in turn, add value to their current roles, and graduates keen to acquire new expertise and who are thinking of commencing the solicitor qualification.

Lectures are held weekly on a Wednesday evening with a monthly block release weekend on a Friday and Saturday. The Saturday workshop sessions form an integral part of the course design and are intended to consolidate what is learned in lectures. They offer an opportunity to participants to work in smaller groups, facilitated by experienced practitioners working through relevant problem-based case studies. Each module will also comprise a skills session tailored to the particular topic and there will be additional specific workshops on legal writing and examination techniques.

The programme is based on the following module scheme:

  • Module 1: Constitutional Law
  • Module 2: Criminal Law
  • Module 3: Contract Law
  • Module 4: Tort
