Course content

This course, based on work-related skills training, is for those wishing to qualify as attorneys in Trinidad and Tobago (TT).

The Legal Practice Course (LPC) equips you with the appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding of procedures and practice to embark effectively on your internship.

This course is taught via distance learning, enabling you to study at your own time and pace. There is a one week Foundation Course at De Montfort University in Leicester in September which includes social events. This has involved face-to-face teaching in small groups where students were able to work on realistic practical exercises.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.5 (including a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or equivalent is normally required.
