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.
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.
