Course Summary

The LPC element of this course will prepare you for life as a solicitor. You’ll develop the practical skills you need from our experienced tutors who are legal professionals themselves. They understand what it takes to succeed in a legal career. The LPC meets the academic requirements of the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA). The research element of the LLM is a chance to gain in-depth knowledge of a legal area that interests you. You’ll develop advanced research skills that can lead to a career in academia as well as legal practice. The masters level means you come away with detailed knowledge of a specialist area of the law. That’s a great stepping stone to more specialised legal roles. It will also give you legal research skills, which are useful in many settings. If you find you have a passion for legal research, you’ll be ready to explore PhD study and can look into academic career routes. Throughout your studies you’ll be supported by highly experienced tutors. Everything you learn will be related back to legal practice. You can further improve your CV by getting involved in pro bono work through our network of legal partners. You’ll also have support from our dedicated careers and employability service. A Masters qualification typically comprises 180 credits, a PGDip 120 credits, a PGCert 60 credits, and an MFA 300 credits.

Property Law and Practice workshops will be based primarily on a 3-link chain of residential conveyances. Students will hold files for the 2 joint sellers/buyers in the middle of the chain. You will progress these files from taking initial instructions to completion and post-completion formalities. In this way you will appreciate the nature of a property transaction and be able to identify and perform the critical steps in a transaction.
