It is designed for solicitors, barristers, those about to enter the legal profession, and practising lawyers.
The LLM in Legal Practice enables professional qualified graduates from England and Wales, and other jurisdictions with a common law heritage, to convert their PG Dip in Legal Practice, LPC (Legal Practice Course), BPTC (Bar Professional Training Course) or other professional law qualification into a masters degree.
This LLM in Legal Practice programme at Oxford Brookes University is aimed primarily at those who are already in legal practice, although in some cases students are permitted to begin the course alongside the start of their legal career. As such, students are drawn from, and continue to progress in, a wide range of legal professions, including English solicitors and barristers, Pakistani advocates, Bahamian counsel and advocates, and Seychellian attorneys-at-law, as well as university lecturers in legal practice.
Some students run their own legal practice, in partnership, or are fee-earners, but we have also welcomed in-house counsel working, for instance, in international finance. As a part-time course requiring reflection on professional practice, our normal expectation is that applicants will be in full-time professional employment during the course.

The primary purpose of the University’s Financial Aid Fund is to relieve financial hardship which might impact on a student’s participation in higher education at Oxford Brookes and to help them remain at the University.
Students should be aware that the Fund is intended to act as a safety net for those in financial difficulty rather than their main source of income.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
