Course summary

Overview

Our LLM in Legal Practice enables professional qualified graduates from England and Wales, or those with a common law heritage, to convert their professional law qualification into a masters degree. Examples of these include PG Dip in Legal Practice, LPC (Legal Practice Course), BPTC (Bar Professional Training Course).

The course structure recognises professional achievement and experience. Is designed so that you can study alongside your legal career. The course is ideal for:

solicitors
barristers
practising lawyers
those about to enter the legal profession.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, collegial atmosphere. We regularly work you individually and provide you with one-to-one support.

This is an established course and we welcome participation from common-law lawyers across the globe. Including those working in small jurisdictions. This cosmopolitan ethos is reflected in our community of international students and staff.

Career prospects

This programme is aimed primarily at those who are already in legal practice, although in some cases students are permitted to begin the course alongside the start of their legal career. As such, students are drawn from, and continue to progress in, a wide range of legal professions, including English solicitors and barristers, Pakistani advocates, Bahamian counsel and advocates, and Seychellian attorneys-at-law, as well as university lecturers in legal practice.

Some students run their own legal practice, in partnership, or are fee-earners, but we have also welcomed in-house counsel working, for instance, in international finance. As a part-time course requiring reflection on professional practice, our normal expectation is that applicants will be in full-time professional employment during the course.
