Are you interested in a career as a solicitor? We are now offering the LPC as part of a Masters’ degree – the LLM Legal Practice course at University of West London. This incorporates both stages 1 and 2 of the LPC – the professional qualification you will need to become a solicitor.


You will have opportunities to meet and network with local solicitors and trainees through our close connections with the Middlesex Law Society and the graduates of the Legal Practice course at University of West London who are now in practice. You will also have opportunities to apply for a range of legal work experience opportunities and to take part in the Law School's free legal advice clinic, run jointly with Ealing Equality Council.

We are accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority ('SRA') and receive excellent feedback from our students, so you can feel confident in the quality and standards of our course.


On successful completion of this course you will be awarded the LLM in Legal practice and will be able to work as a trainee qualified solicitor.

Our Careers and Employment Service provides careers workshops tailored for our LPC students, as well as practical, individual help with applications and interviews for a training contract. You will have this support available to you for up to three years after you complete the LPC, and indefinitely if you join the Alumni association.
