College of Law is offering accelerated LPC to all students
The College of Law is going to offer its accelerated Legal Practice Course (LPC) to all students from 2012.
The accelerated LPC will be seven months long rather than the usual ten and will be available in two specialist study routes, this will allow students to focus on either corporate law or commercial and private law.
Sarah Hutchinson, Board Member for Business Development at the College, says, “We want to give all students an equal opportunity to accelerate their LPC studies and start their legal careers sooner. For many years the legal profession has been moving towards staggering their intake of trainees throughout the year. Offering an accelerated LPC with various start dates allows students to keep up the momentum between finishing their course and starting their training contract, ensuring that their learning is current and there are no big gaps.”
Sarah continues, “The accelerated LPC will obviously be more intensive than the regular course and will be suitable for those students able to commit 100 per cent to their study. This is an illustration of the College’s flexibility in course delivery to meet the diverse needs of our students.”
Previously the accelerated LPC at the College of Law was only available to future trainees of the College’s City law firm clients Allen & Overy, Baker & McKenzie, Clifford Chance and Linklaters.
The first accelerated corporate route LPCs will run at the College’s London Moorgate centre in January and July 2012 with further programmes scheduled for September 2012 at the College’s Birmingham and York centres. From 2013 the course will also run at the Bristol and Manchester centres while the commercial and private law study route will be available at Guildford.
