Course content

The LLM Legal Practice Course (LLM LPC) aims to prepare you for practice as a trainee solicitor and to provide you with a solid foundation for subsequent practice as a solicitor.

This course, which can be studied full-time or part-time, is a key part of the vocational stage of training to become a solicitor for graduates or Members or Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives who have completed the academic stage of legal training.

The course emphasises and develops the skills which are required for a successful career in practice, and it must be successfully completed prior to the commencement of a training contract.

Additionally, the course will provide you with the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge of an area of chosen legal interest through completion of a Masters’ level dissertation.

The LPC is designed to give students a strong foundation for general legal practice. Therefore, equal weight is given to the core practice areas of Business Law and Practice, Property Law and Practice and Litigation.

Vocational Electives are provided at Stage 2 of the course. The choice of electives offered provides a balance between 'High Street' private client and “Commercial” areas of practice.

Students are provided with textbooks and practice-based materials for each element of the course.

LPC students have a specially designated resources room with access to practitioner texts and reference materials. You will also have access to on-line practitioner reference materials and resources, such as precedents, statutes and legal databases.

Students are supported in their search for employment with a dedicated Careers Tutor and a number of initiatives throughout the academic year. We have strong links with both local and national firms and are engaged with the local legal community. LPC students will have the opportunity to participate in Mentoring Schemes, to attend the University’s Law Careers Fair and to attend practitioner presentations and workshops.

You can apply and develop your legal knowledge and skills by volunteering as a student legal adviser in the University's acclaimed Legal Advice Centre, assisting members of the public with legal queries.

Our LPC has excellent academic staff and course teams who will make every effort to ensure that each student gets the support they need.

The addition of a Masters’ level dissertation will give students the opportunity to obtain a higher level, Masters’ degree, qualification and gain specialised knowledge and insight into an area of law relevant to their intended legal practice.
