The primary purpose of this qualification is to support your progression into higher education, specifically to an LLB or BA degree course relating to law.
The ATHE Level 3 Diploma in Law is a 60 credit qualification and is the equivalent level to an A-Level or Access to HE 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.
The qualification provides you with an introduction to law and the legal system as well as key academic, research and communication skills to support learners in their development.
Who this qualification is 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.
The qualification is primarily intended to support your progression to higher education. 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.
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 Paralegal Studies.
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.
