Vocational programmes

We are the only Russell Group University validated to offer the main vocational training courses currently required for entry into the legal profession.

Established in 1993, our Centre for Professional Legal Studies offers the LLM Legal Practice course (LPC) on a full-time and part-time basis for graduates wishing to become solicitors and the LLM Bar Training Course (BTC) for graduates wishing to pursue a career as a barrister. For those who do not wish to pursue a master’s degree, we offer the LPC and BTC as traditional postgraduate diploma courses.

We also offer the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), this being the conversion qualification enabling non-Law graduates to progress to the professional stage of training via the LPC or BTC.

We offer the following courses:
