The Legal Practice Course (LPC) is a one-year, full-time (or two-year, part-time) course designed to fill in the practical knowledge gaps in your skills. It aims to ensure that you are able to do the work of a trainee solicitor under proper supervision when you begin your training contract.
The LPC covers four basic objectives: pervasive and core areas; compulsory subjects; optional subjects and skills.
Applications for almost all institutions that offer the LPC are managed by the Central Applications Board .There is no longer a closing date and applications are dealt with as they are submitted. Law undergraduates should apply in the autumn term of their final year, while non-law graduates should do so in the first term of the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). Applications for part-time courses should be made directly to the institution. Find out more about working in the law industry.
