Legal Practice Course (LPC)

Developing the legal skills and knowledge needed for a successful law career.

Many leading law firms exclusively send their trainee solicitors to study the LPC with us and we are the preferred choice for over 150 organisations. We work with firms across the legal profession to develop the best possible education for future solicitors, enhancing your employability through dedicated support and placement opportunities. So you can be confident that our LPC will help you launch a successful legal career.

The Legal Practice Course, also known as the LPC, is a postgraduate course that is normally studied after an undergraduate degree or law conversion course. If you are looking to become a solicitor, our LPC gives you the knowledge and skills to secure a training contract and succeed in practice. You can now choose to study this through face-to-face learning at our centres, or online. 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.
