There is still time to take the traditional route to solicitor training with Northumbria University’s Legal Practice Course (LPC).
Northumbria’s Legal Practice LLM helps you make the transition from the classroom to the courtroom.
Acting as a bridge between the academic study of law and the practice of law, you will get the opportunity to apply the legal knowledge you gain on the programme in a practical way. Approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority as a training route, this LLM offers you the chance to gain an internationally recognised LLM qualification in addition to your LPC.
Our LLM in Legal Practice allows you to choose a specialism and to study the areas of law you are most interested in, whilst preparing you for a training contract and life as a solicitor. The LLM is also eligible for a Government Postgraduate Loan unlike a standalone LPC. As an LPC LLM student you will get tailored careers support which will help give your career an edge.
Northumbria University works in partnership with Citizens Advice Newcastle and Support Through Court, legal charities providing advice, assistance and/or support to individuals and promoting access to justice. You will have the opportunity, subject to successful application, to volunteer with these organisations to develop your legal skills, enhance your employability and assist individuals with advice, assistance and/or support.
