Course

Law courses develop professional competence in the field of law for prospective lawyers, attorneys, legal assistants, analysts and more. Ranging from Diplomas to Certificates to Courses, some Law courses require a larger time commitment than others. Each law course focuses on a particular area of law. Universities in Civil or Common law countries would offer law courses specific to their local legal system. Many universities also offer international law courses, which focus on international law or skill sets that are applicable in any legal jurisdiction.

While all law courses are diverse in topic and function, each one has its own distinct benefits for the students. In general, law courses provide an opportunity to learn from experienced professors. Law courses are rigorous, challenging and up-to-date, providing the most relevant academic experience. The completion of a law course shows potential employers that the applicant has developed relevant skills in a particular area of law, law practice or paralegal work.

Online law courses are an option for working professionals or individuals with a busy schedule. Law courses can be taken online, with all required materials provided digitally. This omits the requirement to commute to campus to attend classes. The interactive aspect of online law courses also gives students the opportunity to communicate directly with their professors and other classmates, and requires them to formulate their thoughts in a clear, cohesive written fashion.

Students in over 150 countries pursue CIE examinations each year to gain entry into prestigious universities worldwide, including those in the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Brickfields Asia College (BAC), a Cambridge International Associate Partner is proud to offer the CIE A-Level programme which would enable students to progress into degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Commerce, Economics, Finance, ITC, Communication, Law, Marketing and Mass Communication amongst others. This last year 4 of our students achieved the honour of being "Top Student in the World"!! Students should consider whether the Standard or Express Route will suit them better. With the Express Route, students can complete their A-Levels in just 11 months, from January to November and are able to start their first year Degree in Business or Law in the January and actually begin their second year of their Degree Course in the September, saving a year on their overall studies - Graduate faster. We generally restrict students who take this option to 2 A-Levels, but this is the normal entrance level to our UK university partners where in most cases students in Law or Business study their first two years in Malaysia then go the the UK for their final year, unless they would prefer to study all three years in just one country. However for those wishing to take 3 or more subjects the Standard Route will be the best option and this takes around 18 months to complete, after which time students can decide whether to continue their studies with us or attend another university, either way we will be happy to advise you of the best option.

Law Conversion Course - Legal Studies Common Professional Exam (CPE) / Diploma / LLM

London South Bank University
Campus Full time Part time 10 months August 2016 United Kingdom London + 1 more

The Law Conversion Course - Legal Studies Common Professional Exam (CPE) is an accredited conversion course for non-law graduates aiming for a professional career in law. [+]

Overview The Law Conversion Course - Legal Studies Common Professional Exam (CPE) is an accredited conversion course for non-law graduates aiming for a professional career in law. It satisfies all the requirements of the professional bodies including the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority. Transform your career With over 30 years of expertise, LSBU Law has shaped the professional futures of thousands of law students. Study law in the heart of the capital - connected and convenient, with excellent transport options and a short walk from the Royal Courts of Justice. Steps to becoming a solicitor or barrister On successfully completing the CPE you are eligible to enter the Legal Practice Course (for intending solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course (for intending barristers), which has some additional entry requirements including an aptitude test and English language proficiency. Experienced tutors The course is taught by an experienced team of tutors most of whom are solicitors or barristers which provides you with invaluable insight into the details of legal principals and real case examples. Modules You'll study seven modules required by the professional bodies for students intending to apply for the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC): Introduction to the English legal system Law of the European Union Obligations 1 (law of contract) Obligations 2 (law of tort) Public law Land law Criminal law Equity and trusts Project module Dissertation for the award of LLM Dissertation (LLM only) Assessment Most modules are assessed by exams, exams plus coursework or presentations. Award X8 modules = PgDip + CPE X8 modules and dissertation = LLM Employability Solicitor or Barrister This course can lead to one of many careers in law from a professional qualification as solicitor or barrister to a wide variety of careers in both public and private sectors. While our graduates may go on to join professional courses leading to qualification as a solicitor or barrister, the Diploma is also useful for numerous jobs that value skills in analysis, clear communication, efficient organisation and reasoned persuasion. BSB and SRA This course is fully recognised by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority and constitutes completion of the Academic Stage of Training for the purposes of further study on either the Legal Practice Course (for intending solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course for intending barristers (with additional entry requirements including an aptitude test and English language proficiency). LLM Progression Unlike a Graduate Diploma in Law our PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE is a postgraduate level qualification. After successfully completing the course you'll accumulate sufficient postgraduate credits to be eligible to submit for the further award of LLM by dissertation. The LLM is an optional qualification additional to your Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Studies. To obtain the LLM you must successfully complete a supervised 15,000 word dissertation for which preparation has already been undertaken by your successful completion of the project module forming part of the programme leading to the PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE. The Masters dissertation is usually submitted in the semester following completion of the PgDip Legal Studies plus CPE. You'll not be required to attend classes when researching and writing your dissertation and you'll therefore be able to enrol on the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course in the September following the successful completion of the PgDip in Legal Studies. Timetable The course begins with the fundamental aspects of the English legal system followed by a range of more specific modules and your choice of project dealing with an area of law. Teaching and learning The primary aims of the course are to ensure that you achieve a sound understanding of English law covered in the seven foundation subjects, which provides a solid grasp of the structure and operation of the English legal system. Classes consist of a mixture of lectures and smaller group meetings where exam technique and problem solving approaches are practiced. The course is well supported by online materials and search resources, which can be accessed off-campus. Entry requirements Any undergraduate degree from a UK or Irish university or its equivalent in any discipline with a minimum of a 2.2 classification or its equivalent and that you are considered to be suitable to undertake the course. Exceptionally, favourable consideration will be given to those with a third class honours undergraduate degree or its equivalent, after having taken into account the applicant's work experience, other relevant experience and circumstances together with the applicant's commitment to the course. Please note however that by virtue of the regulations of the Bar Standards Board, students with a third class honours degree or its equivalent are not normally eligible to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course. If you do not have an undergraduate degree from a UK or Irish university and: 1. You wish to become a barrister, you must have a Certificate of Academic Standing (CoAS) issued by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) proving your eligibility to join the LLM/PGDLS+CPE. Without this CoAS, progress to the next stage Bar course (BPTC) will be blocked – even though you were admitted to a CPE course and passed the CPE. 2. If you wish to become a solicitor, your eligibility to join our LLM/PGDLS+CPE course is decided solely by this University considering your academic qualifications and work experience. If you already have a CoAS from the SRA (who no longer issue them), we will consider it if still within its expiry date. 3. You are not required by this University to have a CoAS from the BSB to join the LLM/PGDLS+CPE. However, unless you are certain you will never want to become a barrister, you should consider obtaining one before your CPE course commences. Competence in the English language is required to be offered a place on the course. If you are not a national of the UK or Ireland or of a majority English-speaking country, you may have to demonstrate proficiency in English. This can be evidenced by an IELTS score of 6.5 or Cambridge Proficiency or Advanced Grade C. [-]

Course 2016. The objective of the course is to present state of the frontier research on systemic risk and to illustrate its implications for micro and macro prudential regulation as well as monetary and competition policy. The course will begin with the definition, characterization, measurement and analysis of the determinants and consequences of systemic risk. The main models proposed in the literature will be explained, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. Special attention will be devoted to illustrate the practical regulatory policy implications along with the main empirical findings. The course will also cover the empirical quantitative techniques proposed in the literature for the measurement and prediction of systemic risk. The discussion will focus on the logic behind the various methodologies rather than technical aspects, emphasizing the ability to provide useful early warning signals. Moreover, given that the consequences for the aggregate macroeconomy are a crucial part of systemic risk, key interactions between macro and finance are also explained. The last part of the course will provide a critical summary of the prudential regulation initiatives for systemic risk, highlighting the limitations of current microprudential policy, the potential of the new macroprudential approach, and the costs and benefits of the proposed policy measures. One part of the course will be based on the forthcoming MIT Press book by Freixas, Laeven and Peydró on “Systemic Risk, Crises and Macroprudential Policy.” Key benefits: to understand... What is – and what is not – systemic risk, and the determinants and implications of systemic risk Build-up and crashes of asset-price and real estate bubbles Credit bubbles, crunches and real effects of systemic risk Pervasive incentives versus psychological dimensions to excessive risk-taking The relationship between monetary policy and financial stability Competition policy and excessive risk-taking Contagion and liquidity models of systemic risk Micro and macro prudential policy and their differences Positive and negative aspects of the proposed regulation (Basel III, Dobb-Frank, Vickers report, ESRB, EU directives, EBA…) and other possible policy prudential tools Systemic risk measurement and modelling for risk management (including: CoVaR, MES, Stress Testing) and the predictive ability of the systemic risk measures and early warning signals Network analysis to measure systemic risk Case studies on major crises: Differences and similarities between major systemic crises Participant Profiles The ideal participants for this course are economists, supervisors, policymakers, and lawyers, working in: Central banks Commercial banks Financial intermediaries Regulatory and supervisory agencies Financial services International / multilateral organizations Public institutions [-]
