The ATHE Level 3 Diploma in Law is a 60 credit qualification and is the equivalent level to an A-Level or Access to higher education 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.
Although the qualification is primarily intended to support your progression to higher education, the introductory skills, knowledge and understanding that you will gain would be of use in various job roles in a legal setting, such as legal secretary or administrator, including those offered through school/college-leaver traineeships or fast-track programmes.
The Diploma will provide you with a firm grounding in terms of legal knowledge and understanding, alongside the opportunity to develop the academic and research skills you will need on an LLB or BA degree course in law.
You will take 4 mandatory units (15 credit each) including:
- The English legal system
- Contract law
- Academic and research skills for law
- Legal terminology and communication
With LSIB you will get following advantage in order to study on-line.
- Same diploma as on-campus students
- Diploma is recognised worldwide
- Assessments via assignment submission
- You study on-line at your own pace
Who is this course for?
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.
There are no formal requirements for specific prior qualifications or levels of attainment. However, if you have not already achieved a level 2 qualification in English and/or maths, you will normally be expected to take a GCSE or Level 2 Functional Skills qualification alongside this Diploma in order to support your progression to higher education. To enter for this qualification, you must have an appropriate standard of English to enable you to access relevant resources and complete the unit assignments.
The legal knowledge, understanding and skills that the Diploma will have helped you develop will also prepare you to progress to a Level 4 law qualification such as a Level 4 Diploma in Legal or Paralegals Studies.
