If you are working in local government law you will already appreciate the scope and opportunity that a career in this specialist area can offer. But how do you go that extra mile to show you are committed to becoming the best in the field?

The Diploma in Local Government Law and Practice is a one-year, self-study course which provides a route to self-improvement, skills development and career enhancement. It is recognised by delegates and employers alike as a sign of commitment, proof of ability and a stepping-stone to more senior posts.

Throughout the course candidates will be required to undertake practical projects which will combine legal, administrative and political issues, which will demand knowledge of organisational structure and procedures and raise problems of formulating, influencing and implementing policy. These projects will take account of the special responsibilities of officers in local government in their relationships with elected members and with the public. At the end of the course there will be a written examination on local government law and practice.

If you are interested in enrolling, or would like further information, please see the prospectus on our website. Alternatively you can email LGD
