Program description

Legal Practice Course - PG Dip (Full-time)

Why study this course?

London Met's Legal Practice Course (LPC) postgraduate diploma is designed to prepare you for employment as a trainee solicitor by providing a solid foundation in the skills and knowledge required in this career. Approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), this course can be studied full-time or part-time in the day or the evening.

If you have completed the academic stage of legal training, the Legal Practice Course postgraduate diploma will provide you with the professional stage of training required to qualify as a solicitor. London Metropolitan University has a long-standing reputation for training solicitors and was one of the first universities to be validated to run the LPC.

The course imitates the nature of the work you would encounter in legal practice and follows clients through various legal transactions and court hearings. It builds on the substantive law that you will have already learnt and includes the study of both law and procedure in the major areas of practice.

You’ll also learn the everyday skills of practical legal research, interviewing and advising, writing, drafting and advocacy. This will prepare you for your subsequent professional training and practice as a solicitor.

The majority of London Met's LPC tutors are qualified lawyers with extensive practice experience. You will find all of our tutors to be friendly and approachable.

The classes are highly interactive in their small groups of three-hour sessions and are supplemented with online tests, revision lectures and materials.

Although some lectures that cover more complex subjects will be available online, the emphasis is on face-to-face teaching and individual feedback. This is in accordance with overwhelming student feedback that prefers the benefits from live contact with tutors and fellow students. You learn by doing on this course.

The course has dedicated facilities, including an LPC resource room (LC2-33) with a dedicated LPC room containing practitioner text and IT resources and teaching rooms with audio-visual recording facilities. Materials and case studies are provided within the course fee.

The careers team will also be on hand to help you in your career development, whether you are seeking a training contract, applying for work placements or other pro bono opportunities to enhance your employment prospects.

This is a competitively priced Legal Practice Course provided by a London university with flexible study options. Upon completion of the LPC, there is an option to apply for a top-up LLM in Legal Practice by completing Legal Research Methodology and Legal Practice Dissertation modules.
