On-line Admissions Process September 2015

Those interested in applying to the Institute of Professional Legal Studies (IPLS) or the Graduate School of Professional Legal Education (GSPLE) for entry in September 2016 should know that the admissions process to IPLS and the GSPLE for 2016 entry which was due to open on the 1st September 2015 will open on 10th September. The early application fee period that would normally have closed on the 30th September will be extended to the 10th October to reflect the delay in opening the admissions process.  The closing date will remain midnight on the 15th November 2015

This follows Ulster University’s decision not to recruit students on to its Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Legal Practice for September 2015 entry.  We are keen to ensure that candidates are fully informed about their choices before completing the on-line application form.  IPLS will be offering both the Solicitor and Bar courses in 2016/17.

The admissions process for 2016 will continue to be administered jointly by the GSPLE and IPLS and applications can be made via both GSPLE and IPLS websites.
