Overview

If you have completed the academic stage of legal training, the Legal Practice Course from London Metropolitan University will provide you with the professional stage of training required to qualify as a solicitor. London Metropolitan University has a long-standing reputation for training solicitors and was one of the first universities to be validated to run the LPC.

The course imitates the nature of the work you would encounter in legal practice and follows clients through various legal transactions and court hearings. It builds on the substantive law that you will have already learnt and includes the study of both law and procedure in the major areas of practice.

You’ll also learn the everyday skills of practical legal research, interviewing and advising, writing, drafting and advocacy. This will prepare you for your subsequent professional training and practice as a solicitor.

The majority of London Met's LPC tutors are qualified lawyers with extensive practice experience. You will find all of our tutors to be friendly and approachable.

The classes are highly interactive in their small groups of three-hour sessions and are supplemented with online tests, revision lectures and materials.

Where this course can take you

London Met is focused on helping its LPC students obtain a training contract and legal work experience. You will be designated a professional mentor to provide individual advice and guidance.

Our excellent careers team are able to help you with advice regarding training contract applications and preparation of your CV, as well as by providing mock interview practice which will help you find valuable work placements and pro bono opportunities to enhance your CV and establish contacts with the solicitors' profession.
