Overview

This course gives you both a Qualifying Law Degree and the Legal Practice Course (LPC). The course is geared to professional practice, and you can start your training to become a solicitor as soon as you graduate.

From the start of the course you will be given an introduction to the skills required by lawyers. This prepares you for the clinical experience in Years 3 and 4, where you will work with real clients on real cases, offering you invaluable experience which will make you more attractive to future employers. Fees are consistent throughout rather than increasing at the LPC stage, so the course offers a more accessible route to becoming a solicitor.

On completion you will carry out a period of work-based learning (currently called a training contract) under the supervision of a solicitor. Students completing the course, or those choosing to leave with a Qualifying Law Degree after three years, can also begin to train as a barrister.

The general ethos of the course is one of integration of the academic and practical. In Years 1 and 2 you will cover the same core subjects as you would on a Qualifying Law Degree. Alongside these subjects you will study two modules, Legal Systems and Skills and 21st Century Law and Skills, which have been specifically designed for this course. In Year 3 you will build on the foundations provided in these preparatory skills modules to work on real cases handled by the Student Law Clinic in the Clinical Legal Practice 1 module. You will carry out this work under supervision and with appropriate training. You will also study a mixture of academic and practical subjects including some Legal Practice Course subjects. Year 4 is entirely devoted to the practical subjects that would ordinarily be studied on the Legal Practice Course, while you will continue to work with real clients in the Student Law Clinic on the Clinical Legal Practice 2 module.

Students can choose to spend an additional year of study abroad at partner institutions around the world. They study for 120 additional credits through the two Law Study Abroad modules.
