Program Description

The Level 3 Diploma in Law is a 60 credit qualification and is the equivalent level to an A-Level or Access to HE Qualification. It has been designed for learners who wish to progress to study a law degree but may not have the traditional entry qualifications usually required.

This qualification will suit you if you are planning to take a Law degree but do not yet have sufficient, relevant attainment at Level 3 to meet the entry requirements for a higher education course.
