Course Summary

Why choose this course?

The Legal Practice course (LPC) aims to prepare you for practice as a trainee solicitor and to provide you with a solid foundation for subsequent practice as a solicitor.

This course, which can be studied full-time or part-time, is a key part of the vocational stage of training to become a solicitor for graduates or Members or Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives who have completed the academic stage of legal training. Students will receive a Postgraduate Certificate in Legal Practice upon successful completion of Stage One only. Students that complete both Stage One and Stage Two will be completed with the full award of Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice.

Career Paths

The LPC aims to prepare you for practice as a trainee solicitor. Students who subsequently decide not to go into legal practice will have acquired skills and knowledge that have a wide application in business, commerce and banking, particularly in areas that require knowledge of the law.

Modules

In this core practice area students will study the nature and structure of different business media with a view to being able to select an appropriate medium and structure to meet the client's commercial requirements, and to advise on the legal and taxation implications. Students will develop an understanding of the interests of different parties involved in the business including directors, shareholders and creditors of a business and learn how to progress basic business transactions arising during the life and development of a business, drafting the appropriate documentation to facilitate this. The module will also cover conduct and regulation issues, such as conflicts of interest and FSMA, as they arise in the context of relevant transactions.
