Legal Practice Course

Successful completion of all the elements of our LPC will result in the award of a master's degree:  the LLM Legal Practice Course. As well as providing you with an internationally recognised qualification, you will leave us with enhanced insight into the legal profession and better equipped to succeed. This course is also available on a part-time basis.

Students who do not wish to study for the full master's award can still study for the award of a postgraduate diploma and receive their LPC award. However, all students will benefit from the enhancements made to the LPC.

We are confident that our LLM Legal Practice Course (LLM LPC) will provide you with the best training currently available. We have an excellent reputation within the legal profession and our LPC has continuously received the highest possible grading from the Solicitors Regulation Authority in every area of the course.
