University overview The University of Law is the UK’s longest-established specialist provider of legal education and training in the UK. Our expert Employability Service gives students access to work experience, pro bono opportunities and legal vacancies as soon as they accept their place. The result is excellent employability statistics: 97% of our full-time 2016/17 and accelerated 2017/17 LPC students graduating in summer 2017 secured employment, a training contract or further study within nine months of successfully completing their course. Graduate Diploma in Law (full time/part time/online) Our modular GDL spreads the workload for a better paced approach. Unlike linear GDL courses, our modular course structure is spread over different semesters, so you can ‘bank’ some exams, therefore reducing any excessive end of course assessment burden. MA Law (full time/part time/online) Our MA Law course is designed for non- law graduates to gain a legal qualification at Master’s level. An internationally recognised qualification, it is ideal if you’re considering a career path in or outside of the legal sector. MA Law students may also be eligible for a postgraduate loan. Legal Practice Course (full time/part time/online) Our career-focused LPC will prepare you for life as a solicitor. Improve your career prospects by learning the essential professional skills that legal employers are looking for. At no extra cost, you can gain an MSc in Law, Business and Management or an LLM in Professional Legal Practice. LPC Master’s degree students may also be eligible for a postgraduate student loan. With a clear focus on your employability, we can offer you our LPC Employment Promise. Get a job in nine months or receive 50% of your fees as cashback plus 50% of your fees as credit towards any further courses. Bar Practice Course (full time/part time) Our BPC provides an accessible and affordable approach to securing pupillage and preparing for life as a barrister. You’ll get to study in small groups, with plenty of opportunities to test your advocacy skills, including taking part in mock trials. With our BPC LLM, you can choose from three pathways to success: complete real-life legal work experience, write a dissertation or study additional modules and sit the exams after you finish your BPC. Master’s degree students may also be eligible for postgraduate funding. LLMs (full time/part time/online) Our LLMs for law and non-law graduates are designed for those who want to explore the practical application of a particular, specialist area of law. LLM students may also be eligible for a postgraduate loan. MSc/PGDip Legal Technology (full time/part time/online) Designed for law and non-law graduates who would like to gain essential in-depth knowledge of legal technology. MSc Programmes Build on your ICA Professional Diploma expertise and develop your compliance or wealth management knowledge with our career enhancing Master’s programmes.
