Course content

LLM Legal Practice is a full Masters course which includes the Legal Practice Course (LPC) – the vocational qualification you need to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales.

Law in Sunderland was ranked second in the UK for Satisfaction with Teaching in the Guardian University Guide 2014. In 2015, we were ranked best in the North East for Satisfaction with Feedback.

Research in law has been rated as 'internationally excellent' in the latest Research Excellent Framework, making Sunderland an excellent place to study law.

Employers are increasingly looking for candidates with the Legal Practice Course qualification for entry level roles such as Paralegal positions, which are often a stepping stone to a Training Contract, therefore, this LPC has been uniquely designed to meet all the requirements of the Solicitor Regulation Authority (SRA).

You will develop public speaking and leadership skills and gain practical experience, enabling you to have the strongest possible application to employers of your choice. Your skills will be further developed through bespoke optional modules routes, live client experience in Sunderland Student Law Clinic and a Legal Practice Project.

Strong connections between the Sunderland Law School and a number of local, regional, national and international law firms allow you to learn from experts in the field.
