Months of entry
If you want to practise as a solicitor in England and Wales (or another common law jurisdiction) you need to complete your Legal Practice Course (LPC). By combining these studies with an LLM you’ll graduate with two qualifications.
This can help you stand out in a competitive jobs market. The specialist skills you’ll develop could allow you to work in a particular area of law that interests you.
Ready for work
The LPC element of this course will prepare you for life as a solicitor. You’ll develop the practical skills you need from our experienced tutors who are legal professionals themselves. They understand what it takes to succeed in a legal career.
The LPC meets the academic requirements of the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA).
The research element of the LLM is a chance to gain in-depth knowledge of a legal area that interests you. You’ll develop advanced research skills that can lead to a career in academia as well as legal practice.
Our staff have varied specialisms and you could learn from some of the leading researchers in fields such as human rights, discrimination law and equality law.
