What is Postgraduate Diploma Law?

This programme provides an alternative path into a career in law. It also should interest those considering careers outside law, in which law plays an important part. The Postgraduate Diploma in Law aims to provide an integrated programme in the practice and theory of law, supported by lectures, tutorials, coursework and research projects. The academic foundation in law gained by a successful student should be sufficient to permit him or her to proceed onto the further professional training necessary to become a solicitor. A graduate will acquire a critical understanding of and approach to the diversity of legal issues in contemporary Irish society - skills useful to a career in law and transferable to employment in business, government, social work and academia.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
