Do you want to specialise in a new area of the law? Are you struggling to progress your career and want a way of boosting your skills and standing out?

This LLM in Legal Practice is designed for people like you. We’ll help you deepen your knowledge of an area of the law directly related to practice. 

It’s the ideal way to develop detailed knowledge of a new area. It’s also an opportunity to delve deeper into your current specialism.

Building experience

You’ll learn about research methods. Then apply them in a dissertation or research project. 

Choose an area of practical law that you’re interested in and benefit from the extensive skills and knowledge of our teaching team.

Flexible study

This top-up degree is for those who already hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC or BPTC/BVC).

We understand that many of our students on this course are working. That’s why you can choose to study part-time or via distance learning, as well as full-time.

You don’t have to be based in the UK. On the distance learning route you’ll have the same support from our dedicated tutors as our full-time students do.
