Course content

Acquire the skills, knowledge and attitude to prepare you for the start of a legal training contract.

The Legal Practice Course (LPC) offers intensive, postgraduate-level study to those who wish to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales, under the current system. To become fully qualified after completion of the LPC, you will need to undertake a two-year training contract, which is a period of recognised work-based training.

This course is an intensive, highly interactive, skills-based course. Assessment is by examination, coursework and live skills assessment.

The LPC will ensure that you acquire the skills, knowledge and attitude to prepare you for the start of the training contract. It will equip you to deal with the demands that are likely to be made of you in practice and lay the foundation for your future practice as a solicitor by encouraging habits of competence, confidence and professionalism.
