Course information

The Legal Practice Course (LPC) programme of BPP University, also known as the LPC, is a postgraduate course that is normally studied after an undergraduate degree or law conversion course.

The course is exactly the same, with the same amount of live teaching, no matter which mode you choose.

Your learning is built around simulated client portfolios to build the legal skills that employers and recruiters are looking for. Learn from qualified lawyers who can help to shape your career, with links to law firms and in-house teams at every level.

You can choose from more electives than any other provider to match your passion and career goals, utilising our expertise within  each legal specialism.
