Course summary

Overview

LLM Legal Practice is a full Masters course which includes the Legal Practice Course (LPC) – the vocational qualification you need to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales.

The course mixes taught elements with independent research, and will set you on track for a successful career in law by helping you develop valuable skills employers look for, including ‘Business Law and Practice’, ‘Litigation and Advocacy’.

Course structure

A typical week for you will include weekly three-hour workshops. These are interactive and require a high level of preparation. The research project and dissertation are supervised by your tutor.

Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters course requires a higher level of independent working. You will encounter a range of practical supervised and portfolio assessments across the programme followed by an extended piece of researched coursework for your Legal Practice Project.
