Nottingham Law School has a proven track record in practical skills training and is one of only eight educational establishments validated by the Bar Standards Board to deliver the BPTC. We're the only provider to offer a one-year LLM BPTC, which means you have the option to also gain a Masters qualification as part of your course.

The BPTC aims to equip you with the skills and procedural knowledge necessary to follow your chosen career. Our BPTC was written by eight barristers who came to the Law School from practice. The course was designed in conjunction with judges, practising barristers and senior academics. Practitioners and judges assist with the delivery of the course as guest speakers and in practitioner workshops.
