Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

If you are aiming for a career in law in England or Wales, this is the course you need.

The Legal Practice Course (LPC) is essential for anyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor in both countries, and will give you the practical skills and confidence you need for a career in this exciting and challenging profession.

Taught entirely by experienced solicitors and barristers, the course is designed for law graduates and those who hold a Graduate Diploma in Law. It bridges the gap between academic study and practical training.

LEGAL PRACTICE COURSE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

The LPC completes the academic requirements to work as a solicitor, meaning you can then move into training with a law firm.

We have an established work placement programme, enabling students to secure training contracts and paralegal positions.

Our career support services include:

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
  • Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
  • Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
  • Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics
  • Funding to support student internship opportunities and Student Society/Club events.

We also provide help and advice for Swansea University Alumni up to two years after you graduate.
