Bar Professional Training Course

The BPTC is part of the process of qualifying as a barrister.

It builds on the law degree/graduate diploma in law and prepares you for your work based training as a pupil. It is an intensive, highly interactive, skills-based course. Assessment is by examination, coursework and live skills assessment.

The BPTC is available with a master's qualification (LLM) or without a master's qualification (PgDip). If you opt to study the LLM, you may be eligible for a UK Government Postgraduate Loan.
