Good news for any students planning to qualify as a solicitor in the Norwich area—the University of Law has announced it will collaborate with the University of East Anglia (UEA) to deliver the Legal Practice Course (LPC). The collaboration will begin at UEA’s Law School campus from September this year, with students able to take advantage of UEA’s facilities.

An essential component in qualifying as a solicitor in England and Wales, the LPC will be offered alongside the LPC LLM and LPC MSc in Norwich. Students will be able to complete the latter two degrees at no extra cost. 

ULaw provides the LPC at a wide variety of UK locations, and this expansion to East Anglia is the latest to be added to its 12 teaching locations. Professor Andrea Nollent, vice chancellor and CEO at ULaw, said that the school was “delighted” at the collaboration, adding: “We are dedicated to delivering outstanding legal training throughout England and Wales, and working with UEA Law School ensures that those students looking to qualify in law now have greater opportunity to do so.” 

News of the collaboration comes at a time of expansion for ULaw, which is set to open a campus in Nottingham later this year. It’s also set to make its first move overseas, opening an international campus in Hong Kong. 

Norwich is a legal hub in its own right, with a number of prominent regional firms as well as regional offices of national firms. For anyone hoping to qualify into the region, ULaw’s presence will come as good news—ULaw said in a statement that students will “benefit from ULaw’s expert teaching and excellent employability results, without relocating or regularly commuting out of East Anglia”. 

In addition, students will be able to commute from Peterbrorough, Cambridge, as well as other locations across Norfolk and Suffolk. 

“We know that Norwich is somewhere our students just don’t want to leave,” said Polly Morgan, UEA’s deputy head of law. “We're therefore very pleased to be linking up with The University of Law to enable current and prospective students, as well as those who have studied their undergraduate degree at another university, to undertake the Legal Practice Course after their law degree and qualify as a solicitor.” 

Courses will start from September this year, and will be classroom-based in the UEA Blackdale annex. You can find out more by visiting ULaw’s website
