The Diploma in Law has been developed by Centre de Perfectionnement aux Techniques Economiques et Commerciales ‘CPTEC’ (Center for Development in Economic and Commercial Techniques) to provide a qualification for students who are seeking to work in the legal industry or in occupations where a practical knowledge of the legal industry will be of utility.  It acts as both a standalone qualification and progression to a further degree aspiration for students. Though, the main aim of the Diploma in Law is to give students the legal knowledge and practical insight into the workings of the legal industry. In particular, students will get an insight into the workings of law firms and the role that they can play in law firms across the region. Holders of the Diploma will be able to demonstrate detailed knowledge and critical understanding of the major theories and concepts in law.

The Diploma in Law will be of interest to students planning a career where a knowledge of fundamental legal principles and basic legal skills will be of use, e.g. business administration, legal administration, federal, state or local government administration. It will also be of interest to students who have a general interest in the law as an area of study. It will teach students core skills to enhance their career prospects, whether that be a student fresh out of school or someone wishing to upgrade their qualifications. Some core skills covered include; familiarity with the fundamental features of Nigeria and regional French legal system, the principles of business law and contract law, contemporary legal and ethical issues confronting regional society, communicating in groups, conflict resolution, problem solving, individual and group decision making, and an understanding of ethics, morals and cultural beliefs. Successful completion of the Diploma of Law guarantees students a place in most undergraduate degrees at CPTEC, with a possible 120 credit points credited towards their new program of study. Successful completion of the Diploma of Law will provide students with a pathway to most CPTEC undergraduate degrees, including the Bachelor of Laws, or a start to their career where a knowledge of fundamental legal principles and basic legal skills will be of use, e.g. business administration, legal administration, federal, state or local government administration.
