Whether it’s working through a case study in a group, or learning about professional conduct from a leader in the field, the Legal Practice Course programme from Manchester Metropolitan University prepares you for life as a solicitor. 


Learn the law from academic experts. Practice your legal skills in live situations. Manchester Law School gives you the best of both worlds in a supportive University community.

We develop your legal knowledge while exploring the commercial side of what it takes to succeed.

You’ll build the skills you need to think and behave as a professional such as interviewing clients, writing letters of advice, preparing legal documents and appearing in court. Our interactive course covers it all.

You can even volunteer your skills to find out what legal work is really about. Our pro bono projects mean you can practice your craft while helping someone in need or providing support for a business.

The Legal Practice Course programme from Manchester Metropolitan University follows the requirements of the Solicitors Regulatory Authority so you can practise in England and Wales. 


With an LPC under your belt, you’ll be ready to start your journey towards becoming a qualified solicitor.

From the moment you join the course, we’ll work with you to build your CV. Our Careers and Employability Service is here throughout your time with us, ready to offer advice and guidance to support your professional ambitions.

You’ll learn from tutors who not only have great connections across the sector, but also have their own professional experience, so they’re well placed to offer useful advice and insight. With our Pro Bono Network, you’ll also have the chance to put your skills to the test by tackling real-life issues, often with life-changing results.
