Our LLM in Advanced Legal Practice equips you with an LLM qualification and includes the Legal Practice Course (LPC) needed for professional practice as a Solicitor. Our LPC is the longest established in Bristol, with strong links with the legal community and training contract opportunities.
Whether you are intending to practice in the City, in a commercial firm, in a small high-street practice or in a niche area of law, our LLM in Advanced Legal Practice will give you the broad and rigorous foundation you need.
The course includes the interim award of the PG Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC), which is the programme of vocational training required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for students wishing to qualify as solicitors.
There are different options to complete your LLM in Advanced Legal Practice, which allow you to focus on your continuing professional development as a reflective practitioner, with responsibility for your own development and learning. This reflects the SRA's new Continuing Professional Development regime.
Our broad-based LPC provides a solid foundation for your legal career. You will study the core practice areas, course skills and additional areas as prescribed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
We place great emphasis on developing your key legal skills, which are taught in an integrated manner, ensuring you are well equipped for entering your chosen field.
Careers / Further study
The LLM in Advanced Legal Practice prepares you for a successful career as a solicitor. Many of our graduates have gone on to practice in the City, or in commercial firms, small high-street legal practices or niche areas of law. UWE Bristol alumni can be found in almost every local firm.
You will have access to our extensive careers development programme, including one-to-one pastoral support from your supervising principal (who will help with applying for a training contract); support from specialist careers tutors (who can help with applications aimed at specific sectors) and access to a dedicated legal careers advisor from the University's careers service.
We run regular careers sessions with local practitioners. Many firms advertise training contracts and paralegal vacancies through us so they can tap into the high quality recruitment pool our LLM in Advanced Legal Practice offers them. We also offer a work placement scheme in partnership with more than 20 member firms of Bristol Law Society during the summer holidays. Another CV enhancing activity is "Catch the Wave" which gives you the chance to act as a solicitor in a simulated case study supervised by tutors and practising solicitors.
Our award-winning careers service helps you develop your employment potential through career coaching, a vacancy service for internships, placements, jobs, global opportunities, volunteering and community activity. It also offers support for entrepreneurial activity, and access to employer events.
