Course content

Students studying for the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at City can convert their LPC into an LLM in Legal Practice. Our LPC is delivered at Master's level rather than degree level, allowing you to gain an LLM by completing an additional dissertation during or after your LPC.

This LLM satisfies all the requirements of a traditional LLM, but has a primary focus on professional practice. In addition to the taught classes on the LPC, the programme gives you the opportunity to choose, focus on and strengthen your knowledge and understanding of a specific area of professional legal practice.

By undertaking this LLM you can therefore underline your commitment to a particular area of practice, as well as strengthening your CV and improving your employability prospects.
