Course content

The LPC is the vocational stage of the route to qualifying as a solicitor and prepares students through practical assessment for the legal profession. Students learn how to apply academic aspects of law into real life scenarios. Most students study the LPC after completing the academic stage of training by means of passing a law degree or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).

The Legal Practice Course prepares students for the next stage of vocational training, the training contract. Many students go on to secure training contracts locally and further afield.

It is delivered in different ways to meet the needs of students. You can study the Legal Practice Course full-time, part-time, on campus, or blended learning.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: PgDip Legal Practice

This course can be studied in the following ways: Full time and part time face to face, or full time and part time blended learning.

Part-time study

The Legal Practice Course is delivered flexibly to meet the differing needs of students and can be studied full-time on campus or via blended learning across one year, or part-time on campus or blended learning over two years.

Students studying part-time on campus typically attend lectures and workshops on one day per week.

Blended learning

The blended learning version of the course allows greater flexibility of study for students who can study at their own pace, in their own time, anywhere in the world. To ensure we fully support all learners, this version of the course combines face to face sessions with online delivery of taught material. There are three intensive face-to-face block sessions – all three are delivered at our Stoke-on-Trent campus, with the option for our International students to attend the second week-long session in Trinidad and the third session via virtual attendance (i.e. video conferencing, online discussions).

Students can choose between full time (one year) and part time (two years) study.
