The entry requirements are either: •a Diploma in Legal Practice from a recognised LPC provider, or •a Diploma in Legal Practice at the Bar from a recognised BPTC provider. If you possess either of these qualifications then, ordinarily, you will be credited with 105 M level credits towards the completion of the LLM in Legal Practice. These requirements may be waived where it can be shown that you have previous work experience that has made you suitable for this Masters programme. The further 75 credits required to complete the programme will be gained from the above-mentioned legal research methodology module which culminates in the dissertation proposal (15 credits) and the dissertation itself (60 credits). In exceptional circumstances, it may be possible to secure an accredited prior learning exemption from the research methodology module. If you are an international student who has successfully completed an LPC /BVC/ BPTC programme in England and Wales you are welcome to join the programme. Those whose first language is not English are required to have attained a recognised English Language qualification equivalent to IELTS 6.5, with a minimum of 5.5 in each component.
