School of Law

Continuing Professional Development

We offer a suite of CPD courses on a range of subjects from mental capacity to safeguarding or child care law and practice. Most of our courses are delivered by way of three day block sessions.

A Postgraduate Diploma or Masters level degree can be completed over up to 5 years. For the first four years, you could complete a single module that would meet your CPD obligations. At the end of four years and after the successful completion of four modules you could be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma. If you wanted to convert your diploma to an MA or LLM, then you will have the option to complete a dissertation of 15,000-20,000 words, supervised by a member of academic staff.

For more information about the possibility of combining CPD obligations with undertaking a Masters degree please contact the CPD Course Administrator, School of Law, Keele University, Keele, Staffordshire, ST5 5BG, Tel: 01782 733229, E-mail:
