Legal Practice LLM
If you want to practise as a solicitor in England and Wales you will need to complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC) – the vocational stage of training that bridges the gap between academic studies and life in a law firm.
For 2017/18, we are offering the LPC as part of a Masters' degree – an LLM in Legal Practice which incorporates both Stages 1 and 2 of the LPC. The total cost of the LLM is £14,500 (£12,500 for the LPC, an additional £2,000 to progress to the LLM).
Westminster Law School has a well established reputation for the delivery of solicitors' vocational training and our LLM in Legal Practice (incorporating the LPC) equips you with the skills and knowledge needed to be a successful 21st-century lawyer.
Distinctive features of the course include:
- Highly experienced and approachable lecturers who are all qualified solicitors or barristers.
- Small, interactive group work, allowing you to benefit from individual guidance and help.
- All sessions are set within a balanced timetable to replicate the tasks undertaken in practice.
- A broad range of Stage 2 electives, reflecting areas of practice from high-street to city firms.
- The opportunity to undertake real client legal work under the supervision of tutors working in the Student Law Centre. Currently students can choose to specialise in one of three streams of work: judicial review, family or property. The focus is on experiential learning through reflection, analysis and planning.
- A mentoring scheme which pairs you with mentors working in an area you are interested in. Our mentors are predominantly ex. LPC Westminster students.
- The course is taught at Westminster Law School's newly refurbished state-of-the-art premises in the heart of London's West End and within the vicinity of many law firms.
