“The “Be a Law Student at King’s Inns for a Day” Open Day gives a great introduction to those considering the Diploma in Legal Studies. I always wanted to do law, but with a focus on the practical side of the legal profession and an academic standpoint. 

The Open Day involves participating with the lecturers on actual tutorial exercises. For me, attending the Open Day convinced me to apply for the course, which I am delighted to be attending.”
