The LPC element of this course allows you to gain the professional qualification required to practice as a solicitor. Many of our LPC students find legally related employment after graduating, despite many of our students starting the course without a training contract in place prior to arriving.
As well as this, the specialist knowledge you will gain from Masters level study will prepare you for various roles within the legal profession or related fields. Alternatively, you could follow a career in public administration, the civil service, voluntary and community sectors, teaching or academia.
Our dedicated careers adviser will provide assistance with initiating new links to the profession. You will also receive support with careers from your tutors and you will have the opportunity to increase your links with members of the Northern Circuit.
During your studies, you will also have access to the Faculty of Business and Law’s Careers and Employability Service. This will continue for up to three years after you graduate. There is a range of careers support services on offer including networking cafes and an annual Pro Bono and Legal Careers Fair.
