Whether you have a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (LPC) or are a practising solicitor looking to specialise further, this course will enable you to enhance your qualifications with a Masters-level degree.
Our LLM Legal Practice top-up course complements the compulsory vocational stage of learning required to embark on a law career.
This course provides practice-relevant study on aspects of substantive law and legal practice.
Teaching methods include lectures, tutorials, seminars, small group work and workshops. The emphasis is on developing the research and analytical skills you need to create a piece of self-managed research relevant to law practice.
You can choose to complete your dissertation either by undertaking an extended piece of research or a self-directed, work-based learning portfolio. This will enable working lawyers to critically reflect on their own legal practice throughout the course.
Our LLM top-up Legal Practice course is run by the School of Law at UWL to provide you with both the high-quality teaching and the personal attention you need to make the most of your studies. Our teaching staff is made up of experienced practising solicitors with a range of specialisms.
Study & career progression
The course will enhance your career opportunities by providing potential employers with evidence of your understanding and detailed knowledge of a particular area of legal practice, improving your employability in an increasingly specialised sector of the market.
