Postgraduate Diploma in Law

The Postgraduate Diploma mirrors the LLM content and fields, but requires less in-depth research. Students take four courses at non-core level, either in one of the designated fields, or they may choose from the available courses to suit their interests and professional needs.

Entry to the program is limited. The Law School admits only law graduates and legal professionals who have demonstrated their ability to undertake and complete advanced academic study.

Please note that not all courses and specialisations are available full-time.

Admission requirements

  • LLB or equivalent degree with an average of 65% in the final year of study


It is possible for a student reading for the Postgraduate Diploma in Law to be granted admission to the LLM by Coursework & Research Report.

 In order to be considered, the student must achieve:

  • An average of at least 70 percent over at least two courses in the Postgraduate Diploma, or
  • between 65 and 69 percent provided the student has demonstrated significant research potential.

A completed Postgraduate Diploma cannot be used for purposes of credits toward an LLM by Coursework and Research Report degree.
