The Diploma in Legal Studies is a one-year full-time programme. It is open only to students coming to the faculty on exchanges from our partner universities in continental Europe.

The Diploma is not a degree and confers no qualification for legal practice. However, the Diploma programme is substantially derived from the Oxford undergraduate law degree programme. In your three terms, you choose and study three courses from a subset of those studied in the BA programme. And you sit an examination in each of them (the same examinations as the BA students) at the end of your third term.

Diploma in Legal Studies admissions are handled by our partner universities in the first instance. It is not possible to make an independent application.
