Course Summary

This course allows you to complete your training and start your career within a year.

Our part-time LPC allows you to complete the course within two years during the day, evening, or at weekends. The course blends self-study with either one full day a week, two evenings a week, or one full weekend, approximately twice a month. This means you can fit your study around existing work or other commitments and offers a choice of convenient study locations.

You’ll need to attend a compulsory induction at the start of your course. Part-time day and evening students will need to attend two full days and Part-time weekend students a three-day weekend. Our LPC offers you the best possible preparation to practice law with the skills to succeed in business. Improve your career prospects by learning the essential professional skills that legal employers are looking for. In small group workshops, you'll be taught by qualified lawyers with extensive practice experience. You’ll also benefit from online learning resources and personal feedback from our tutors.
