Qualification rules

Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice - Qualification Rules

To achieve the Diploma you must successfully complete 10 units from the suite of 19 units. However, if you have completed the Level 3 Certificate in Law and Practice whilst working towards the Diploma, you will have already taken 5 units, so will only have a further 5 units to take in accordance with the qualification rules.

The 10 units taken to achieve the Diploma must comply with the following rules:

1. You must take 7 mandatory units as follows:

Unit 1 Introduction to Law and Practice

Unit 2 Contract Law

Unit 3 Criminal Law

Unit 4 Land Law

Unit 5 Law of Tort

Unit 16 Client Care Skills

Unit 17 Legal Research Skills

2. You must take 3 other units - at least 2 of these units must be Practice units and the third unit can be either a Law unit or a Practice unit. These units are chosen from the suite of 19 units.

3. No Practice unit can be counted as achievement towards the Diploma without the linked Law unit being taken also. The two Practice units must be from different legal practice areas.
