Course content

Focus on an area of professional legal practice of your choice, while strengthening your knowledge and understanding of legal professional practice.

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

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.
