The School of Law is dedicated to enabling its students to become highly effective trainee solicitors through our well respected Legal Practice Course (LPC). As an LPC student, you will join an established professional legal network and continue your professional development with experts across a variety of legal fields. The opportunity to combine the study of legal practice to meet Solicitors Regulation Authority requirements with the creation of a dissertation reflecting extensive research into your chosen area of law will enhance your personal development and your chances of securing employment within a very competitive legal profession.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority is proposing to change the route individuals must take to qualify as a solicitor.

The proposal is to create a new national assessment in two parts, covering elements of the current qualifying law degree (QLD) and the current LPC. That assessment will be implemented nationally in 2020 and will stand alone; students will then have to decide how they will undertake the vast amount of learning required to pass the assessment. Higher Education Institutions and private providers are currently planning how they will develop learning programmes to support the new assessment.

The School of Law has over 25 years’ experience delivering academic and vocational courses in Law, making us ideally placed to deliver high quality learning opportunities aimed at meeting the new assessment criteria.

Our LPC has run since 1994 and more than 1100 of our graduates have embarked on successful careers within the legal profession. Many have joined our established employer network and keep in touch with us via Facebook. When you join our LPC you join an established community of legal professionals.
