**The Solicitors Qualifying Examinations (SQE):

**From 21 September 2021 all students interested in pursuing a career as a Solicitor and who have not already started or signed up to a law degree, GDL or LPC, will need to qualify using SQE. UWE Bristol students will be able to choose from a variety of pathways to prepare themselves for the SQE assessment. Find out more about our new Solicitors Training Course (SQE Prep).**

Our LLM in Advanced Legal Practice equips you with an LLM qualification and includes the Legal Practice Course (LPC) needed for professional practice as a Solicitor. Our LPC is the longest established in Bristol, with strong links with the legal community and training contract opportunities.

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.

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.

Read the Chamber's Guide review of our LPC and this Lawyer2B's article on Bristol's thriving legal sector.

You can also come along to one of our law events and taster sessions.
