Law and Legal Practice (BA)
In 2018, the Solicitors Regulations Authority (SRA) announced the plan to dispense with multiple routes into practice and instead to introduce a single entry point with the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE).
This means that universities no longer have to be accredited to offer a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), nor do students need to have a QLD or the Legal Practice Course (LPC). Students just need to have been taught the knowledge needed to pass the SQE.
This new course, BA Law and Legal Practice (coupled with its associated intermediate awards of a DipHE and CertHE) proposes to combine the foundations of law, already delivered in the joint honours degrees, with essential and corresponding practice modules, thus making it SQE compliant. This will make it easier for students to enter the SQE and remove the need for the LPC.
Law and Legal Practice (BA) has been designed to cover the fundamentals of law and the linked areas of legal practice required to enter the legal profession.
This new program will prepare students to sit the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exams and has been designed around this national framework. It is entirely focused on employment or self-employment within legal practice. This can only enhance the student’s prospects and make them more competitive within the legal profession’s recruitment programs.
There has already been a high level of engagement with professional organisations for the existing law programs and this engagement continues throughout the year. Local law firms such as Peter Lynn and Partners, Graham Evans and Partners, JCP and DJM have been consulted and work with the team to create opportunity of placements and internships for the students, with a number of graduates continuing into employment.

The course works closely with other Public sector organisations, the combination of both legal and public sector understanding and knowledge would be seen as a benefit to the wider legal Justice professions.
