Course summary

USW is proud to be a Top 50 Law School (Guardian League Tables), and the LLM offers you the opportunity to gain an internationally recognised LLM qualification in addition to your Legal Practice Course (LPC).

The LLM incorporates a programme of study and assessment approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), which you must complete if you want to qualify as a solicitor.

You will develop an in-depth understanding of business and property law, litigation and court procedure, and enhance your ability to engage in critical academic study and research by way of a research project, helping you to develop the professional and reflective skills necessary for practice.

Assessment

For the Legal Practice Research Project, you are expected to produce a research proposal and a dissertation or reflective portfolio.

For Stage One and Stage Two, you will be assessed by written examinations and practical skills assessments, which will include recorded role play in our moot courtroom and client interviewing room.

Careers

The LLM Legal Practice, and in particular, the LPC element of this course, is a requirement for qualification as a solicitor and develops the skills you will need on entering the profession.
