Course content

Whether you are intending to practice in the City, in a commercial firm, in a small high-street practice or in a niche area of law, our LLM in Advanced Legal Practice will give you the broad and rigorous foundation you need.

The course includes the interim award of the PG Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC), which is the programme of vocational training required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for students wishing to qualify as solicitors.

There are different options to complete your LLM in Advanced Legal Practice, which allow you to focus on your continuing professional development as a reflective practitioner, with responsibility for your own development and learning. This reflects the SRA's new Continuing Professional Development regime.

Highly rated

The LPC at UWE Bristol is highly rated by the Law Society and received a rating of 'commendable practice' in every area of the course under the SRA's grading scheme.

"Whilst my Law degree gave me theoretical legal knowledge, the LPC at UWE Bristol has been invaluable in putting that knowledge into practice." Katie Amos LPC graduate

Practical tuition

Tuition is provided by a small, dedicated team of solicitors, who ensure the course is relevant, up to date and, above all, prepares you fully for practice. You will gain critical awareness of how legal practice works, and develop the foundations of the legal skills you will need to excel in your role as a solicitor.

Extensive careers support

You will have access to employment-enhancing activities (such as our placement scheme and accredited mediation training) and focused careers support, including help with applying for training contracts and links to potential employment through our extensive network of local firms.
