Currently studying the Diploma

The Diploma is very different from the LLB and students will find they are in classes much more than during their undergraduate/accelerated degree. Much of the teaching is carried out by solicitors and the content is highly practical and skills-based.

During the Diploma, you may wish to consider joining the Law Society's student benefit scheme, which allows you to attend all the Society's CPD for new lawyers events free of charge and to receive the monthly Journal magazine. The cost for the year is £30.

During the Diploma, we would also encourage you to get involved with the work of the legal profession and consider volunteering for some of the ongoing projects run by the Society. We would also recommend signing up to receive news and details of upcoming events from the Law Society.

You can also read more about the validity of the Diploma and applying for an entrance certificate.
