General requirements

The LPC is a postgraduate course with entry requirements prescribed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Most students will have a UK honours degree in law. Normally a strong second-class degree is the minimum standard required. However, it is possible to apply with a degree in another subject and a further qualification in law, such as the Graduate Diploma in Law. The SRA can advise on non-standard qualifications.

In considering your application, we will take the following into account:

  • Academic profile and achievement.
  • Strength of personal reasons for wishing to take the course.
  • Evidence of your motivation to become a solicitor (work experience, training contract applications, etc.).

Students who have passed the BVC or BPTC in the last five years will be able to accredit their prior learning and so will only have to take certain elements of the course.

Please contact us if you want to know more about this option.
