Legal Practice

This award is for those with professional legal qualifications, for example the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) or The Legal Practice Course (LPC) (or their precursors). Credit points are awarded for these professional qualifications and students can then 'top-up' these points with a dissertation or publishable article to gain this LLM. Students will study the course entirely by distance learning . The course will also count Acquired Prior Experiential Learning (APEL), which in this case must be no less than 2 years verified professional experience as a qualified legal professional which can account for two-thirds of the LLM. Students will then 'top up' these credit points with a dissertation or article, studied and completed by distance learning, to gain the LLM degree. APEL accreditation is awarded solely at the discretion of the Course Leader.

Entry requirements

LLM: Applicants should have successfully completed either the Legal Practice Course (LPC), or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC). Applications from members of other legal professions will also be considered, for example, Patent Attorneys or Trade Mark Attorneys. Legal professionals from other jurisdictions are also eligible to apply.
