Course content

Prepare to practice as a solicitor in England or Wales: completing our LPC course will allow you to move on to take a training contract. You will explore a number of areas of practicing law, and keep up to date with the latest opportunities in the legal profession. Thanks to our flexible teaching, you will have time to follow these opportunities up, too.

Overview

On our Legal Practice Course at Anglia Law School, you will explore civil litigation and dispute resolution, criminal law, property law and business law. As well as this, our range of optional modules will give you the chance to learn about family law, employment law, child care, commercial dispute resolution and private client work.

You will benefit from extra support and training as well. We offer non-assessed training in areas like billing, file management, commercial awareness and family law.

With our links to practitioners, who also help to develop the course, you will have access to the latest careers advice and maybe even the opportunity to be interviewed for a training contract. We will also keep you up to date on vacancies in the legal job market.

Our high staff-to-student ratio means we can give you an excellent level of pastoral care, addressing your individual needs and supporting your transition from undergraduate study to the Legal Practice Course, and from the LPC to training contracts and employment.

And thanks to our flexible teaching, you will be able to fit your studies around other commitments such as employment or training. Most of our large group sessions are delivered by i-lecture, so you can view remotely from wherever you want.

When you are studying on-campus in Cambridge, you will benefit from a range of facilities including our mock courtroom, which will allow you to practice advocacy in a realistic setting.

We are the only university in East Anglia to offer the Legal Practice Course.

Careers

Our LPC course will prepare you for life as a practising solicitor in England or Wales, and allow you to continue on to the two-year training contract that will fully qualify you for professional practice*.

You will most likely choose to complete your two-year training contract with a firm of solicitors in private practice, but might prefer to take one with an alternative employer, such as the UK government (through the Government Legal Service), local government, the Crown Prosecution Service or a law centre. Whatever you decide, you can be sure of receiving specialised guidance for your career in law on our Legal Practice Course.

*unless you have a FILEX qualification and exemption from the SRA.
