Gain a Master’s for free

Rather than enrolling on the core LPC, you may prefer to enrol on one of a Master’s qualifications which are available to you at no extra cost:

MSc in Law, Business and Management

If you want to become a partner in a law firm or progress through any number of career paths, our MSc will provide you with the skills you’ll need in practice:

  • Client-focus and embedded business skills to enable you to deliver commercially focused advice
  • Development of essential professional skills ranging from oral and written communication, through to meeting skills and project and risk management
  • A wide selection of electives to cover your specialist areas of interest
  • Innovative assessment to ensure you have the skills law firms require
  • Expert teaching by qualified solicitors and barristers in addition to lectures by visiting professors 

Successfully complete your LPC course with an additional Law and Business module and Business Case Study Report and we will award you an MSc in Law, Business and Management.

LPC LLM in Professional Legal Practice

Alternatively, if you would like the opportunity to gain a broader insight into the law, our LLM will suit your needs. Successfully complete your LPC with either an extra elective or a Law and Business module and a Professional Practice Research Report and you will receive an LPC LLM in Professional Legal Practice.

If you only want the LPC

If you choose not to undertake either the MSc or LLM you can still enrol on the LPC without a Master’s award. You will be issued with a Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Legal Practice and will still have completed the vocational stage of training requirements.
