The Course


This LLM in Advanced Legal Practice will give you the broad and rigorous foundation you need. The course includes the interim award of the PG Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC), which is the programme of vocational training required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for students wishing to qualify as solicitors. There are different options to complete your LLM in Advanced Legal Practice, which allow you to focus on your continuing professional development as a reflective practitioner, with responsibility for your own development and learning. This reflects the SRA's new Continuing Professional Development regime.

The LLM in Advanced Legal Practice prepares you for a successful career as a solicitor. Many of our graduates have gone on to practice in the City, or in commercial firms, small high-street legal practices or niche areas of law. UWE Bristol alumni can be found in almost every local firm. You will have access to our extensive careers development programme, including one-to-one pastoral support from your supervising principal (who will help with applying for a training contract); support from specialist careers tutors (who can help with applications aimed at specific sectors) and access to a dedicated legal careers advisor from the University's careers service.
