If you want to practice as a solicitor, this is the course for you. By combining a qualifying law degree and the Legal Practice Course (LPC), successfully completion of the undergraduate Masters in Law Honours programme means you can walk straight into your solicitor’s training contract.
This degree is innovative and interesting, focussing not only on academic law but also practical application, giving you the opportunity to experience real world learning. You can engage in a range of pro bono activities, not only in the classroom but across the City through our links with the legal professions. You will have the chance to meet and advise “real” clients supported by professional legally trained staff.
You will be taught through a variety of methods and have on average 12 contact hours per week including lectures, seminars and interactive workshops where IT is used to support the learning activities. Furthermore, each module is supported by the University’s virtual learning environment “Blackboard” where you can review recorded lectures and take part in interactive learning activities.
You will be encouraged and supported to take part in a range of extra-curricular activities and competitions both internally and externally. You can compete against other Universities in various competitions including mooting, negotiation and mediation competitions. In 2016 one of our students won an International prize for the best individual mediator.
At Lancashire Law School there are great opportunities for International travel. We have organised study trips to Europe including visiting Auschwitz, The Hague and Brussels. You may wish to study part of your degree at our campus in Cyprus or, alternatively, take part in our week long Leadership course there. In addition, we have sent our students on trips to visit our law students studying in Mauritius and in the future we hope that we will be sending our students to China for an exchange visit.
In addition to the MLaw qualification you will be able to study modules which will give you additional accreditation in areas including Arbitration and Mediation, enhancing your employability.
You will be supported throughout your studies by dedicated Academic Advisors who are there for both academic and pastoral support, so there is always someone to turn to.
Whilst we offer a wide range of Postgraduate law courses and many of our graduates do enter the legal profession, we are proud of the fact that many of alumni have found careers in other areas. This is because our curriculum not only focusses on academic subjects but has embedded within it transferable skills necessary for real world employment.
