Preparing you for practice

The LLM Legal Practice (Solicitors) offers you the opportunity to develop the advanced skills, commercial awareness and specialist knowledge that firms demand. 

You will study all standard LPC core areas and can choose from a wide range of electives depending on the type of law you want to specialise in. You will also study a Practice-Ready module.

Additionally by studying the compulsory Law Review and Reform module you will conduct original research into an area of the law that needs reform and learn to see the law operating from a user's perspective rather than an academic one.
