About

The Legal Practice (Top-Up) programme at Anglia Ruskin University will give you training in research skills that will prove invaluable in your future career, and a dedicated supervisor for advice and support.

Overview

If you’ve completed the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course, or you’re a practising solicitor or barrister who has taken the former Law Society Final Examinations or BVC, the  Legal Practice (Top-Up) programme at Anglia Ruskin University will top up your qualification to an LLM Legal Practice.

If you’re an overseas lawyer then, subject to taking the Qualified Lawyers' Transfer Scheme (QLTS/QLTT) and/or gaining university accreditation of prior learning and experience, you could also be eligible to apply.

There are two study days on campus, but at other times you'll work independently with support from a dedicated supervisor. Your supervisor will help you to develop your research proposal or hypothesis, discuss your methodology (including ethics clearance) and act as a mentor throughout your time with us.

Careers

This course will give you an in-depth understanding of your chosen area of legal practice to use in your future career, and teach you vital research skills that are in great demand in the legal profession and beyond.

Programme Structure

Assessment
  • You’ll demonstrate your understanding of your chosen research area through a 15,000-word dissertation, which you’ll normally submit in early may if you study full-time, or end of September if you study part-time.
