Course content

Make the transition from the classroom to the courtroom with an LLM in Legal Practice at Northumbria University.

Designed to act as a bridge between the academic study of law and the practice of law, the LLM in Legal Practice will enhance your legal knowledge and enable you to develop the skills and values necessary to become an effective and successful legal professional.

This Master’s degree course offers you the opportunity to gain an internationally recognised LLM qualification in addition to your LPC. Completing an LLM project will help you to develop the professional and reflective skills necessary for practice, expanding on your legal knowledge, legal application and ability to critically analyse law, practice and policy.

The programme will equip you for the demands of the legal profession and prepare you for a training contract and life as a solicitor.

Fees and funding

This LLM is also eligible for the Government’s postgraduate loan, unlike a standalone LPC. Visit our finance pages for more details, and to apply.
