Summary

The Legal Practice Course (LPC) offers intensive, post graduate-level studies to those who wish to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales under the current system. To become fully qualified after completion of the LPC, you will need to undertake a two-year training contract, which is a period of recognised work-based training.

The LPC will ensure that you acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to prepare you for the start of the training contract, equip you to deal with the demands that are likely to be made of you in practice and lay the foundation for your future practice as a solicitor by encouraging habits of competence, confidence and professionalism.

In addition, the LLM Legal Practice Course will also prepare you for a research module submission and allow you to reflect on the challenges facing the legal profession in today’s world.

Note: If you are worried that you may have a “character and suitability” issue which may prevent you from qualifying as a solicitor, you can ask the SRA to assess this before you start the Course. Please visit the SRA website for further guidance.
