About

The Legal Practice Course programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton aims to prepare you for practice as a trainee solicitor and to provide you with a solid foundation for subsequent practice as a solicitor. 

Overview

The Legal Practice Course programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton, which can be studied full-time or part-time, is a key part of the vocational stage of training to become a solicitor for graduates or Members or Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives who have completed the academic stage of legal training.
