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.
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.
You will show your progress through a combination of timed open book supervised assessments, oral practical and coursework-style assessments across the course. You will also undertake full-scale mock assessments in all areas, including all skills subjects.
All students take our core modules, plus three vocational subjects from the list of optional modules. Please note that the availability of optional modules is subject to demand.
