The Graduate Diploma in Commercial Law is aimed at those who are looking for a shorter, more specialised programme focused on aspects relevant to commercial law. It offers a valuable discrete qualification for those seeking expertise in commercial law.

Why study with us?

The Graduate Diploma is awarded by the University of London. So you’ll go away with a standalone qualification from a prestigious university that covers the core law subjects with a focus on commercial law. 

Our class sizes – which we keep deliberately small – mean you get a lot more time to talk to your tutors than at other universities. You’ll have the chance to delve deeper into your subjects, and access the focused support you need to gain full value from your studies.

On top of this, you’ll be based right here in Jersey, so you won’t have to travel far from home to access the high quality legal training you want to take your career forward. 


The program consists of 4 modules, each worth 30 credits. Students must complete four modules to obtain the Graduate Diploma in Commercial Law.

Compulsory Modules

  • Contract Law
  • Commercial Law

Optional Modules (Two to be chosen)

  • Company Law
  • Conflict of Laws
  • Intellectual Property Law


  • Each module is assessed entirely by a single examination.
  • Exams are held twice a year, in May/June and October.
  • You can sit a maximum of two modules in the October session.
