Nottingham Law School has introduced a new LLM (Master of Laws) award for those with professional legal qualifications. Professional legal qualifications (for example, BPTC or LPC or their precursors) will provide evidence of appropriate prior learning and achievement, equivalent to two-thirds of the LLM award.* Students will then 'top up' these credit points with a dissertation or publishable article, studied and completed by distance learning, to gain the Masters of Laws degree.
In the increasingly competitive legal employment market practitioners may find that having an additional qualification, a masters degree, will make them stand out from the competition. The LLM Legal Practice (DL) qualification will not only provide additional evidence of your academic ability but also showcase your knowledge of more specialised aspects of legal practice.
The LLM Legal Practice (DL) provides 60 Masters level credits which, when combined with the evidence of academic achievement from the successful completion of the BPTC or LPC (or equivalent), will lead to the award of an LLM.
Applicants should have successfully completed either the Legal Practice Course (LPC), or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).Applications from members of other legal professions will also be considered, for example, Patent Attorneys or Trade Mark Attorneys.Legal professionals from other jurisdictions are also eligible to apply
