LLM Legal Practice (Top Up)

Whether you are a graduate of the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC) or a practising solicitor looking to specialise further, this course will enable you to ‘top up’ your education to a Masters degree level. The course provides practice-relevant study on aspects of substantive law or legal practice and enables you to develop the analytical and research skills necessary to write a detailed piece of research relevant to law practice.

The course will be assessed by dissertation and you can choose to complete this either by undertaking an extended piece of research or a self-directed work-based learning portfolio. This will enable working lawyers to critically reflect on their own legal practice throughout the course.
