Course summary

UCLan’s combined LLM and LPC course gives students the opportunity to gain the professional qualification needed to become a solicitor, at the same time as achieving a master’s qualification. You will:

- Obtain an internationally recognised qualification
- Gain a fully-accredited LPC and a Masters upon successful completion of your course
- Show employers a higher level of professional and academic competence
- Study in a highly practical learning environment designed to prepare you for real-life legal situations
- Receive excellent individual support to maximise your personal potential and career aspirations

Learning Environment and Assessment

The School’s teaching environment is designed to stimulate learning. The course is delivered through a series of interactive large and small group sessions, where the focus is on student centred learning. Attendance is compulsory at all sessions. Core practice areas and elective subjects are assessed by unseen open book application-based examinations. The Legal Skills elements are assessed as appropriate, e.g., a role-play interview, district judge appointment.

Opportunities

Students can participate in the School of Law and Social Science Pro Bono Law Clinic and so to provide advice to ‘real’ clients. There is an established programme of visiting speakers with guests covering a huge range of relevant employment opportunities. The School hosts a ‘Law Fair’ inviting a range of legal employers and giving students an opportunity to discuss work experience, the application processes and training contracts.

You will be offered a wealth of opportunities for personal skills development, for example, taking part in mooting and mediation competitions.
