Legal Practice

The purpose of the LPC is to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to enable you to enter your training contract with confidence and to feel at home in the exciting, demanding and rewarding world of legal practice.

We offer the latest version of the LPC, which enables you to study the course in one year full-time, or over two years part-time, but whichever option suits you best, you'll benefit from the supportive team environment that we work hard to cultivate.

For September 2019 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses. This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in January 2019 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.

All statistics shown throughout this page are taken from Unistats, Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE), BU institutional data and Ipsos MORI (National Student Survey) unless otherwise stated.

"This course is based on realistic scenarios It's taught by solicitors who will help you put what you have learned academically into everyday practice."
Nigel Astbury, LPC Director
