Oxford Brookes – Maastricht Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)

The Maastricht Law Faculty and the Oxford Brookes School of Law offer a challenging new conversion course.

Interested in becoming a solicitor or barrister qualified to practice in England and Wales? Then this new and unique conversion course to English law is for you.

As from August 2013 the Maastricht University Faculty of Law and the Oxford Brookes University School of Law will collaborate closely to offer a unique and challenging Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). This programme offers students a solid academic foundation for pursuing a career as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

Oxford Brookes University has over twenty years’ experience of delivering the Graduate Diploma in Law, which is known for its strong academic focus. The Oxford Brookes and Maastricht Universities now offer that GDL programme, adapted to be taught in the Maastricht setting, to students in Maastricht, where high quality programmes, excellent teachers and student-centred learning lie at the heart of the teaching philosophy!

You need not have studied law to be admitted to the GDL; if you have a bachelor’s degree in for instance European Studies, Political Sciences, History, Economics or Liberal Arts you could still pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. The one-year GDL programme makes it possible for students with a bachelor’s degree in a subject other than law, a non-qualifying law degree, or a foreign (non-UK) degree to complete the academic stage of their legal training in order to then begin the professional stage of training as either a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.
