Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The LLM in Legal Practice and Advanced Drafting combines our Legal Practice Course (LPC) with an independent learning module, to enhance your essential legal skills and give you a valuable master’s level qualification.

The LPC is essential if you want to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. Adding this extra module, to upgrade the qualification to an LLM, makes you even more valuable to a potential or existing employer.

LEGAL PRACTICE AND ADVANCED DRAFTING EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

The LPC completes the academic requirements to work as a solicitor, meaning you can then move into training with a law firm.

Successfully completing a drafting project to gain the LLM will show your enhanced legal skills to a potential or existing employer to boost your career prospects.

We have an established work placement programme, enabling students to secure training contracts and paralegal positions.

Our career support services include:

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
  • Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
  • Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
  • Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics
  • Funding to support student internship opportunities and Student Society/Club events.
