Course content

The Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice, known as the Legal Practice Course (LPC) is your bridge between the academic world and professional life in a law firm. It is no coincidence that BPP University’s LPC is the first choice of many leading law firms and over 60 exclusively send their trainees to study with us. We are selected by these firms above other law schools because of the professional relevance of our education and the enviably high standard of our teaching, facilities and materials.

By choosing to study your LPC with us, you'll have the best possible start to your legal career:
  • Top your qualification up to either an MA LPC with Business or LLM Professional Legal Practice at no extra cost
  • Add value and focus to your LPC by attending free additional workshops and events run by our tutors in conjunction with leading law firms to ensure you are practice-ready
  • Flexible study to suit your schedule: full-time, part-time or fast track, available across three start dates with a choice to study at one of our seven city centre locations
  • Our tutors are qualified lawyers who bring experience of working in practice into the classroom
The Legal Practice Course is awarded by BPP University and is authorised by the Solicitors' Regulation Authority (SRA).
