Graduate Diploma in Law (full time or distance learning) This conversion course is designed for any non-law graduate who intends to become a solicitor or barrister in the UK. The intensive course effectively covers the seven core subjects of an undergraduate law degree in one go. It is the stepping stone to the LPC or the BTC and to a legal career thereafter. Legal Practice Course (full time or part time) At Nottingham Law School we strive to provide you with the practical knowledge and insight that employers regard as essential. This is why we have enhanced our LPC so that the successful completion of all its elements will result in the award of a Masters degree.

On the LLM part of the course you will have the opportunity to complete a project or dissertation, focusing on aspects of legal practice that interest you. You will also benefit from a series of lectures delivered by experts within the legal profession, a bridge to practise module and commercial awareness training.

Our nine-month LLM BTC gives you the opportunity to gain the award of a Masters (LLM), assuming successful completion of the BTC and an additional module, Advanced Advocacy, Advice and ADR, which has been created to give you experience of issues that are at the cutting-edge of practice, such as vulnerable witnesses and expert evidence.
