Courses in this field offer rigorous training to provide you with well-rounded knowledge and skills to disseminate techniques and procedures involved in Legal Practise.
Training typically includes building your understanding of advocacy, litigation, and drafting, as well as improving your professional conduct during activities such as interviewing and advising.
Most courses will involve sessions within a moot court to prepare you for active court sessions, whereby you will work on a devised case with simulated court proceedings. You will also be trained in the techniques for practical legal research using a range of primary and secondary sources.
Careers in this field can prepare you for work as a solicitor, paralegal, or barrister, as well as roles within industry such as financial consultancy and risk assessing. If academia is of interest to you, you might wish to pursue a PhD on completion of your Masters.
