Legal Practice Course

This course is designed for anyone who wants to become a solicitor - whatever area of law you are interested in. To apply, you will have already completed a qualifying law degree or a non-law degree, plus a Graduate Diploma in Law.

The course attracts a rich blend of students with a variety of backgrounds and interests - from around the world and from all parts of the UK.

Providing you with a solid academic foundation, this programme is taught at Masters level, and its structure and content fully meet the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) requirements. The Legal Practice Course (LPC) is part of the required training for qualification as a solicitor of England and Wales, and follows completion of the required academic stage of training.

Entry requirements

The LPC is a postgraduate course with entry requirements prescribed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Most students will have a UK honours degree in law. Normally a strong second-class degree is the minimum standard required. However, it is possible to apply with a degree in another subject and a further qualification in law, such as the Graduate Diploma in Law. The SRA can advise on non-standard qualifications.

In considering your application, we will take the following into account:

  • Academic profile and achievement.
  • Strength of personal reasons for wishing to take the course.
  • Evidence of your motivation to become a solicitor (work experience, training contract applications, etc.).

Students who have passed the BVC or BPTC in the last five years will be able to accredit their prior learning and so will only have to take certain elements of the course.

Please contact us if you want to know more about this option.
