• New ‘Virtual Open Day’ allows students to explore The College of Law from anywhere

  • 16 November 2012

  • Aspiring lawyers can now find out what The College of Law has to offer without leaving their armchairs with the launch of its interactive ‘Virtual Open Day’.

    The online open day is in addition to the regular open days held at the College’s eight nationwide UK centres and offers students an alternative way of exploring the College and obtaining details of its undergraduate and postgraduate law courses.

    Online visitors can watch videos of current students and tutors, hear from leading law firms, experience the College’s learning methods, tour centres, view accommodation and explore its history and heritage. They can also learn more about the modern legal profession and routes to practice as well as request a prospectus and book a place at an actual open day.

    Sarah Hutchinson, Board Member for Business Development at The College of Law, said: “The Virtual Open Day will never replace the experience of actually visiting our centres as a way for potential students to evaluate whether we are right for them and we are welcoming increasing numbers of students through our doors at traditional open days.

    “However we understand that they increasingly want to review information in their own time.  Our Virtual Open Day provides an inspiring digital experience of The College and is an additional way for students to find out about our range of practice-focused courses, our innovative learning methods and first-class facilities as well as learn more about the modern world of law.”

    Courses on offer at The College of Law include a two-year undergraduate LL.B law degree, the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), giving non-law graduates an entry route into the legal profession, and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), the next step towards a career as a barrister.

    New for 2013 is the LL.M Legal Practice Course (LL.M LPC), which will award students not only with an LPC qualification allowing them to progress to the next stage of solicitor training, but also with an internationally-recognised Master of Laws.

    The GDL and LL.M LPC are available as i-courses, involving supported online learning with occasional attendance at a College centre.

    The College also offers i-LL.M Master of Laws programmes, which are studied entirely online with no attendance required. They can choose from the LL.M in International Legal Practice, run in conjunction with the International Bar Association, and the LL.M in Professional Legal Practice. The LL.M in International Legal Practice is also available as a full-time attendance course delivered at the College’s London Moorgate and Manchester centres.
