Course summary

Who is it for?

This course is for students undertaking the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) who would like to convert their BPTC into an LLM.

Objectives:

This LLM satisfies all the requirements of a traditional LLM but has a primary focus on practice. In addition to the taught classes on the BPTC the LLM gives you the chance to focus on an area of professional legal practice of your choice, while strengthening your knowledge and understanding of legal professional practice. This can be linked to pupillage to underline a commitment to a particular area, or can be used more generally to strengthen your CV.

Why City's LLM in Professional Legal Skills?

  • Develop the knowledge and skills gained from your BPTC
  • Benefit from ongoing one-to-one specialist support and expert supervision
  • Explore a specialist area of law with practitioners in that field
  • Enhance your long-term career prospects and attractiveness to employers
  • Gain an instant competitive advantage in a crowded recruitment market.

Teaching and learning:

The classes that you will have already completed on the BPTC provide the taught element of the course. To complete your dissertation you will need to work independently, use practitioner sources and apply law at an advanced level to solve problems whilst developing an awareness of current practice issues.

In support of your work on dissertation we provide:

  • One-to-one structured supervision
  • Web-based guidance on research, planning and writing a dissertation
  • Support for small-scale empirical research
  • Access to all The City Law School and City, University of London facilities, including: Library services, IT support and Careers
  • advice services.

Career prospects:

This course has been developed specifically to assist students in achieving their career aspirations. Students who have pupillage can use work on their dissertation to show their commitment to an area of practice. Students seeking pupillage or going into other areas of legal work can use the dissertation to strengthen their CV.
