Course content

The Specialist LLM in Professional Advocacy provides a unique opportunity to acquire the relevant knowledge and skills to manage litigation and dispute resolution successfully and effectively.

This specialist degree should interest and benefit a broad range of students. If you are already professionally qualified having taken the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) or Legal Practice Course (LPC) it will develop your understanding of practice and enhance your career. If you have legal qualifications in another jurisdiction it will provide understanding of legal process in England. You can join the course straight after a law degree, but some experience of legal practice is an advantage.

The course offers you a skills-based and practice-focused approach to the subject of advocacy in a legal professional setting. You will have the opportunity to study how inquiry and dispute resolution procedures in the civil and criminal justice systems are best managed to produce the best outcome for stakeholders.

Information for international students

If you are an applicant whose first language is not English, the following qualifications are also required:

  • IELTS: 7.0 or above with a minimum of 6 in each area.
