Northumbria’s LPC provides vocational training across a range of subjects and practical skills, enabling students to learn how to apply their legal knowledge in a practical context. The well-established, highly successful programme offers flexible learning options, a strong staff/student ratio, a guaranteed legal placement or professional mentor scheme and a wide range of electives tailored to both general and commercial practice.
The course is taught in two blocks, stage 1 from September to January and stage 2 from February to May.
In stage 1, students study three core practice areas:
- Business Law and Practice
- Property Law and Practice
- Civil and Criminal Litigation
The skills of legal writing, interviewing and advising, drafting, research and advocacy and solicitors accounts and professional conduct and regulation are also taught and assessed during stage 1. Students will have the opportunity to tailor their LPC to their preferred career path as stage 1 is offered in two routes, general practice and commercial practice.
In stage 2, students choose three elective modules. Guidance as to appropriate choice of electives is given by subject tutors during the early part of stage 1.
Applications for this full-time route must be made online through the Central Applications Board, accessible at www.lawcabs.ac.uk
