Legal Practice LPC LLM

USW is proud to be a Top 50 Law School (Guardian League Tables), and the LLM offers you the opportunity to gain an internationally recognised LLM qualification in addition to your Legal Practice Course (LPC).

The LLM incorporates a programme of study and assessment approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), which you must complete if you want to qualify as a solicitor.

You will develop an in-depth understanding of business and property law, litigation and court procedure, and enhance your ability to engage in critical academic study and research by way of a research project, helping you to develop the professional and reflective skills necessary for practice.

The full-time and part-time LLM Legal Practice is eligible for the Government's postgraduate loan, unlike a standalone LPC. The LLM is also available as a 60-credit top-up course for LPC graduates from any institution in England and Wales to convert your LPC to the LLM Legal Practice.
