This course serves as a way for non-law undergraduates to satisfy the legal professional bodies’ requirements for the academic stage of training and progress to the relevant professional postgraduate courses.
The PGDL forms the academic stage of training (as determined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board) for those who wish to qualify as solicitors and barristers in England and Wales and who hold a non-law undergraduate degree (or hold a law degree which is insufficient for the regulatory bodies’
requirements).

Learning Outcomes
| Demonstrate a critical awareness and systematic evaluation of the areas of law studied, the legal process, and the interrelationship between different areas of law
in a national and European context;
| Critically evaluate and apply a range of sources of legal information to assist in legal study and to extract the essential points of that information;
| Demonstrate a critical understanding of how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to model and
synthesise original academic legal theory;
| Critically evaluate, synthesize and apply advanced and contemporary theoretical principles and emergent primary sources of law to a range of complex and open ended
issues, problems and situations.

The PGDL covers the seven foundations of law, namely:
| Public Law, including Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and Human Rights;
| Law of the European Union;
| Criminal Law;
| Obligations, including Contract, Restitution and Tort;
| Property Law and
| Equity and the Law of Trusts.
In addition, students are expected to have received training in legal research.
