University of Sheffield
The Legal Practice Course trains you to masters standard, allowing you to develop an excellent knowledge and understanding of legal practice, whilst also providing you with the vocational qualification you need in order to go on to practise as a solicitor.
Highly regarded by the profession and consistently recognised for the quality of its teaching, the course is part of a top-ranking Russell Group University within a vibrant city, and yet is small enough to remain personal.
The MA in Legal Practice is very much a hands-on course, using case studies and files based on those used in practice. We ask you to research and acquire knowledge, put that into context, identify issues and place the client at the centre of the problem. Upon completion of this vocational aspect of the course, you then go on to submit a dissertation.
