Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law (CertHE)

Denning Law School is proud to announce that it has secured affiliation from the University of London to offer the Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law (CertHE) programme in Pakistan.

The CertHE programme is for students who do not meet the general entrance requirements of the University of London for standard entry onto the LLB (Hons) Programme i.e. have not procured the requisite grade in their A levels or have completed their Intermediate from the local education board in Pakistan. It is a unique independent qualification which provides students the opportunity to complete the same modules, as taught in 1st Year of LLB (Hons) and then progress onto the 2nd year of LLB (Hons) Programme. The CertHE programme at DLS is extremely competitive with students undergoing rigorous workshops and training throughout the year to instill in them the key skills required in the field of law.

The modules studied in the CertHE are the same as the first year modules of the standard entry LLB (Hons) Programme i.e. Contract Law, Criminal Law, Legal System and Methods and Public Law.
