The Master of Law and Practice (MLP) is an exciting Master’s degree that provides a clear route to professional qualification. The degree gives you an exemption from the Legal Practice Course (LPC), which is the second vocational stage of training you need to qualify as a solicitor, so it could see you well on your way to your chosen profession. The four-year Master of Law and Practice (MLP) course helps you meet all the academic requirements before going on to start your legal training, so once you graduate successfully, you can move on to train directly with a legal firm. By studying law in this way, you’ll be able to access tuition fee loans and other financial support, so you won’t have to fund a separate LPC course on top of your LLB(Hons). Having said that, we keep things flexible. So if after your second year you decide you’d rather do the three-year LLB(Hons) then that’s fine. Pass your LLB(Hons) and you’ll have a law degree that qualifies you to go on to train as a solicitor or barrister. To do that, you’ll have to complete a separate professional practice course, as well as a training contract or pupillage. Whatever you choose to do, our Partners in Law scheme is a pretty unique service that could give you all the support you need. We can provide you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through our links with regional and internationally renowned legal firms.
