“I spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon at the interactive–seminar event. We were given an insightful glimpse into the Diploma in Legal Studies course and King’s Inns in general. In addition to a detailed presentation about the course itself, we took part in very realistic classes where we worked together in small groups of four or five.

The classes were hugely interesting and great fun also. Now that I am studying at King’s Inns, I can happily report that this event was an accurate representation of what the Diploma course is like.

I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!”
