The Legal Practice Course from Liverpool John Moores University is a long running course with an established reputation.
The course does not follow the standard University calendar and runs from the beginning of September until June with only two weeks holiday at Christmas and two weeks at Easter/Spring Holiday.
The part-time course is offered in day release or evening modes.
Much of the course is taught through small group skills-based teaching supplemented with large group sessions, directed reading and self-study exercises and preparation.
Considerable emphasis is placed on practice and you will acquire a range of essential lawyers’ skills by carrying out realistic transaction-based tasks.
Students often worry whether they will find a training contract which will enable them to complete their qualification. The good news for students at LJMU is that, outside of London, the greatest number of training contracts are offered in the North West.
It is also the case that the skills you develop and demonstrate during your LPC are transferable to many different roles. Nationally, LPC graduates have been recruited into various careers including: banking and finance, civil service, editorial roles, insurance, and management roles in industry and retail.
