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.

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

London South Bank University
Campus Full time Part time 10 months August 2017 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. [-]

A Level Course

Abacus College & Oxford Language Centre
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years September 2016 United Kingdom Oxford

Choose subjects you are interested in and think you will enjoy. You are then more likely to work hard and achieve good grades. [+]

A Level Course Excellent results from 2014's A-Level students... 23% obtained A* or A grades and 73% A* to C! Why Choose an A Level course? In most countries, students have a general school education and only start to specialise in the subjects of their choice when they enter university. This is one reason why many students choose to come to the UK to join an A Level course, which allows them to choose the three or four subjects in which they are really interested and learn about these subjects in depth. Universities appreciate this knowledge and students who take an A Level course may apply to any university in the UK. How to make your subject choice Choose subjects you are interested in and think you will enjoy. You are then more likely to work hard and achieve good grades. Decide if the subjects you are considering will suit your strengths, such as essay-writing or working with numbers. Look at the requirements for the career you hope to enter and the university course you will take to reach this career objective. For example, if you want to study medicine at university you will need to take Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. If you want to become an Engineer you will need to take Mathematics and Physics. For Economics and some Business degree courses you will probably be asked for A Level Mathematics. Help in making the right choice In Abacus College we will advise you if you are having any difficulty in deciding which course or which subjects you should take. You may like help in deciding whether a University Foundation Programme or an A Level course is the better way to prepare yourself for entering a university. If you have already chosen an A Level course you may not be certain which are the right subjects for you. If you would like to discuss your future education, we shall be very happy to help you either by phone at +44 (0)1865 240111 or by email at info@abacuscollege.co.uk. A Level course duration Two Year Course Students who have just completed GCSE, IGCSE or an overseas equivalent would normally enrol on the two year A Level course which starts in September. Other students entering this course may have just completed an English language course, in Abacus College’s partner language school Oxford Language Centre or elsewhere. All students are helped, at the start of the first year, to understand the language and terminology of the subjects they are studying. They will then complete the work for the AS examinations, which are taken in May/June. In the second year of the course students study towards the A2 examinations and may also be given the opportunity of improving the marks obtained in the AS examinations, if necessary. Five Term Course This is a shortened version of the two-year course. It starts in January and students prepare for the AS examinations in May/June. The second year is a full year, from September to June, at the end of which the A2 examinations are taken. The five-term course will be a good idea for students who need a term of intensive English first in Oxford Language Centre from September to December in order to obtain the necessary IELTS score for entry to A Level. One Year Intensive Course If you have already taken an A Level course and wish to improve your grades you may enrol for this course. If you have excellent secondary school qualifications and are prepared to commit fully to hard work, or if you are a mature student needing to shorten your study time, this course may be suitable. The AS Level material will be covered for the January examination session and the A2 examinations will be taken in June. Retakes One term, two term or one-year retake courses are available for both the AS Level and the A2 Level examinations. Students should contact the college for details. Subjects Abacus College specialises in preparing students for examinations in the following subjects: Business: Accounting; Business Studies; Economics Law & Social Science: Government & Politics; History; Law; Sociology Science & Mathematics: Biology; Chemistry; Computing; Mathematics; Further Mathematics; Physics; Psychology; Statistics Languages: French; German; Italian; Spanish; Russian; Mandarin A Level Examination Boards AQA (Assessment and Qualifications Alliance) EDEXCEL (London Examinations) OCR (Oxford & Cambridge RSA Examinations) [-]
