University of Central Lancashire
Advanced Legal Practice
The study and research of the law relating to advanced legal practice is an area that attracts the interests of graduates that have an interest or connection with the practice of law; it is anticipated that many students who have previously studied for and obtained their legal practice course (LPC) qualification will be able to obtain exemption from the taught modules by Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning; the course is therefore likely to be attractive to students who have recently completed their LPC, are still studying for it and wish to add to it the award of Master's of law, or have been in practice for some time; the course is likely to be particularly attractive to legal practitioners as it is intended to be recognised by the professional bodies for continuing professional development purposes.
An undergraduate Honours degree in law or a professional qualification in law deemed to be degree equivalent. (Other qualifications in law or specific legal training may be also considered if applicant is able to demonstrate his/her suitability for the course and provide information as appropriate.) Such applicants may be interviewed. Students whose 1st language is not English require an IELTS score of 7.0 or equivalent.
Modules include: Advanced legal research methods; dissertation.
Assessment methods include: Written work; short presentation; dissertation.
