PgCert/PgDip Legal Practice (LPC)

Course Description

Designed to prepare you for life as a solicitor, the LPC programme at Manchester Law School will provide you with a thorough and rigorous start to your career. With an emphasis on simulating real life legal situations, the course is both practical and interactive, combining traditional and innovative methods to help you develop the practical and theoretical skills required for legal practice. You will learn how to think and behave like a legal professional from the outset.

You will work through case studies devised to reflect realistic legal scenarios, serving as the perfect way to learn core practice skills such as interviewing clients, writing letters of advice, preparing legal documents and making court appearances.

The courses are delivered in our purpose-built Law School by a highly experienced academic team from a variety of legal professional backgrounds. Your tuition will be delivered through a variety of methods including lectures, seminars, workshops and electronic learning.

You will receive the opportunity to hone your legal skills through involvement in one of our voluntary legal work schemes that offer pro bono legal services to those in need. Manchester Law School also offers an outstanding work placement programme to enable students to gain vital work experience during their electives.

Manchester Law School places emphasis on helping you establish your career. Many students begin the course without a training contract, but 90% of LPC students find legally related employment after graduating. The Law School features a dedicated Careers and Employability Advisor, alongside a well developed practitioner mentor scheme and guest lecture programme.

There are opportunities for LPC students to take part in pro bono (voluntary) work experience in a wide range of areas. We currently work with the following partners: Lawworks, Partners of Prisoners (POPs), Amicus, Personal Support Unit and Manchester Mediation Service. We also run a successful practitioner mentor scheme, giving students the chance to pair up with a lawyer in practice.
