Vocational programmes

We are the only Russell Group University in the UK to offer a wide range of professional legal training courses for those who wish to become a solicitor or barrister.

Cardiff Professional Legal Studies offers the Legal Practice Course (LPC) for graduates wishing to become solicitors, and the Bar Training Course (BTC) for graduates wishing to pursue a career as a barrister.

The LPC and the BTC can be studied either as part of an LLM (which currently attracts government postgraduate loan funding) or as a separate postgraduate diploma for those not wishing to submit a dissertation.

The LPC is available on a full time or part time basis.

We also offer the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), which is a law conversion course for non-law graduates.
