Summary

The Professional Legal Practice LLM is designed for non-law graduates who are seeking to transition to a career in law. You'll learn both the law and its practical application to realistic client-based and ethical problems and situations. The course will provide you with a solid foundation to qualify either as a solicitor or a barrister, whichever profession you decide upon.

The knowledge gained on this course will allow you to progress to further study for the Solicitors’ Qualifying Examination (SQE) or for a Bar Standards Board authorised barristers’ training course. The course also provides the opportunity to gain an academic qualification at Master’s level with the option of either taking our Legal Practice Project module, which combines professional legal skills with academic research, or a dissertation module in the field of International Commercial Dispute Resolution.

You'll practise the relevant skills in your tutorials, looking at writing, drafting, interviewing and advising, research, case and matter analysis and advocacy. You'll be assessed by a variety of authentic assessments which include advocacy, a case study report, analysis of a legal case and a legal practice blog. These will provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate that you have acquired a range of essential professional legal skills in addition to the substantive law.
