Legal Practice Course (LPC)

The LPC is part of the process of qualifying as a solicitor.

It builds on the law degree/graduate diploma in law, and prepares students for their work based training with a law firm.

It is an intensive, highly interactive, skills-based course. Assessment is by examination, coursework and live skills assessment.

The LPC is available in both full-time and part-time modes. The full-time course lasts one year, and the part-time course lasts two years.

The LPC is available with a Master's qualification (LLM) or without a Master's qualification (PgDip). Students opting to study the LLM may be eligible for a UK Government Postgraduate Loan.
