The Legal Practice course from Staffordshire University is the vocational stage of the route to qualifying as a solicitor and prepares students through practical assessment for the legal profession. Students learn how to apply academic aspects of law into real life scenarios. The Masters degree in Legal Practice covers the requirement of the Legal Practice Course (LPC) route to becoming a solicitor and in addition, you can specialise in an area of interest through research and a dissertation.
It is delivered in different ways to meet the needs of students. You can study the LLM Legal Practice Course full-time, part-time, on campus, or blended learning. There is also the top-up option for those who have already completed their LPC and would like to complete the Masters stage.
We provide ongoing careers advice to enable you to make the most of the opportunities available.
We have longstanding links with both national and local practices which enable us to advise you on a range of options. You may start your LPC with a training contract, or find one during your time with us. Students also find that the skills and experience gained during the LPC enables them to work more effectively as paralegals until the start of their training contract.
Our dedicated careers tutor for LPC students, well supported careers department and fantastic on line resources continue to be available to you with careers advice, support and guidance even after you have left us.
