At Cardiff, we are committed to providing an outstanding teaching and learning experience that is underpinned by our excellent research activity. We attract students from all over the world and offer a friendly, supportive and culturally diverse environment in which to study. We offer a range of undergraduate law courses, all of which enable you to complete the foundation modules that constitute the academic stage of training necessary to become a solicitor or barrister. We also offer postgraduate LLM courses that enable you to specialise in particular areas of law, and research degrees for those who want to study an aspect of law at a more in-depth level. Our Centre for Professional Legal Studies provides the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and the Legal Practice Course (LPC) for students who wish to qualify as barristers or solicitors. These courses have consistently received the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board’s highest ratings. We are now also offering a one year, full time GDL from September 2012. We recognise that employability is crucial to all our students. The extra-curricular activities we offer such as our award winning Pro Bono Scheme, mooting competitions and client interviewing competitions, build on the knowledge you gain in the classroom and help you to develop many of the skills required for a career in law and a wide range of professions. We have a dedicated Law Careers Adviser, and we run a comprehensive programme of workshops and presentations designed to help you take that first step in your career. We have a vibrant research culture and are recognised as a leading legal research institute. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise nearly all our research activity was classed as world leading or internationally excellent. We were ranked 7th out of the 100 Law Schools in the United Kingdom. We also offer the latest e-learning facilities and a library equipped with over 100,000 volumes and 270 serial publications, ensuring that you have a first-class environment in which to study. Law is a challenging and rewarding subject which equips you to pursue a range of careers and our courses are designed to enable you to fulfil your academic and vocational potential. We hope that you choose to come and study with us in Cardiff.
