Legal Practice

This is the postgraduate stage on the route to becoming a solicitor and represents a practical training for the solicitors' profession, where students learn how to put law into practice. Most students study the LPC after completing the academic stage of training by means of passing a law degree or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).

Entry requirements

To study the LPC, you must have completed the academic stage of training as recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)

Students need to have achieved a qualifying law degree or passed the CPE/GDL conversion course and therefore have studied the Foundations of Legal Knowledge; or have a CILEX qualification.

For enquiries in relation to your qualifications and their ability to satisfy the academic stage, contact the Solicitors Regulation Authority, telephone 0870 606 2555.
Applicants require a qualifying law degree (preferably Upper 2nd Class) or successful completion of Common Professional Examination required, and Certificate of Eligibility from the Law Society.
