Overview

This is the full LPC masters course and forms part of the vocational stage of training required if you wish to qualify as a solicitor. The Solicitors Regulation Authority recognises this course as meeting its training requirements and covering the necessary legal topics.

The course will be delivered via interactive workshops based on realistic case studies that explore the challenges of professional practice. You will learn from a team of academic staff who are qualified lawyers with significant professional experience. They will provide practical support as you refine your skills, and their wide-ranging experience allied to a varied choice of option modules will enable you to tailor your qualification to particular areas of interest.

Your Independent Legal Research Project will see you complete an extended written dissertation on a subject of your choice with support from your tutors.

As a student of Leeds Law School, you will be able to access a wide range of law textbooks online for free through Law Trove, a subscription-only service offered by Oxford University Press.

Alternatively, you could choose to study for a postgraduate diploma in legal practice. You can find further details on our PG Dip Legal Practice page.

Please note, this course starts on Monday 28 September 2020 at 11am for both part-time and full-time students. All students will be required to attend workshops on four days that week from Monday 28 September until Thursday 1 October. Some of these workshops will be on campus and others will be online.

We are currently scheduling appointments for you to meet with other students and your academic advisor during the week commencing 21 September. You will also be provided with important course information and the course teaching and assessment calendar. Once this has been finalised, more details will be provided via the online course welcome pages, which you will access as part of your enrolment process.

Changes to legal education and training
Legal education and training has been subject to a detailed review by professional regulators in the legal sector. The review has examined the routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister.

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) no longer requires the study of a 'Qualifying Law Degree' (QLD), however, the study of what are referred to as the 'legal foundations of knowledge' is still required before the vocational stage of bar training. All our undergraduate law degrees meet this requirement. The changes to the routes to qualification as a solicitor are due to be finalised in the summer of 2020, with the introduction of those changes provisionally from September 2021 onwards. 

Applicants and prospective applicants are invited to find out more about the changes at our open days and applicant days. In addition, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB) have issued a common protocol for guidance. This can be found by visiting the SRA web pages Solicitors Qualifying Examination and Common Protocol on the Academic Stage of training.

You will be taught by lawyers with extensive professional expertise. Our close links with the legal profession in Leeds will enable you to widen your industry networks and enhance your employment prospects.

Your course will be highly focused on enhancing your employability and developing your professionalism. You will be paired with a professional mentor from the local legal community, who will provide practical support and professional guidance to help you excel in your course and progress in your career.

Leeds is one of the UK's largest legal centres with a wealth of placement and job opportunities. You will be able to take advantage of the established professional networks we have built up over many years. Local law firms engage with us by teaching, leading career development sessions, acting as mentors and judging and providing prizes for a number of legal competitions.

"During my course I always felt fully supported by tutors, who were easily contactable and always willing to help. Workshops were usually really interesting and engaging but also relaxed. I did the course part-time in the evening alongside full time-work, and tutors recognised this and worked with me to reach the lesson objectives efficiently." (Bryony Khan, student).

"Studying for my LPC at Leeds Beckett gave me a strong foundation for my career in law.  Being taught by knowledgeable and experienced lawyers meant I could draw from their practical experience, and get a real insight into day to day life as a solicitor. I found that as my knowledge grew, so did my confidence and I feel well prepared for my future career." (Anna Robinson, student).

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+. Java and Adobe Acrobat Reader will need to be enabled and you will need a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

    Other study-related expenses to consider: materials that you will need to complete your course such as books (whilst the library provides access to readings recommended for your modules, you may wish to purchase your own copies of some books); you can also make suggestions for books to be added to Library stock; placement costs (these may include travel expenses and living costs); student visas (international students only); printing, photocopying and stationery (you may need to pay for multiple copies of your dissertation or final project to be printed and bound); events associated with your course such as field trips; study abroad opportunities (travel costs and accommodation, visas and immunisations). Other costs could include academic conferences (travel costs) and professional-body membership (where applicable). The costs you will need to cover for graduation will include gown hire and guest tickets, and optional extras such as professional photography.

    As well as your mobile phone, you will also need access to a desktop computer and/or laptop to complete assignments and access university online services such as MyBeckett, your virtual learning environment. You can book and borrow AV equipment through the media equipment service accessed online via the student hub and located in the library at each campus. Equipment includes: 360 Cameras, iPads, GoPros, MacBooks, portable data projectors, portable projection screens, flipchart stands, remote presenters, digital cameras and camcorders, SLR cameras, speakers, microphones, headphones, headsets, tripods, digital audio recorders and PC/laptops (a laptop loans service is provided on campus in the library on both campuses). Student laptops are also available from the laptop lockers located in the libraries.

    This list is not exhaustive, costs are approximate and will vary depending on the choices you make during your course. Any rental, travel or living costs are also in addition to your course fees. If you choose to study via distance learning, you may not be able to access all of the facilities listed if you are not able to visit us on campus.
