University profile

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 2016/17 LPC students graduating in summer 2017 secured employment, a training contract, or further study within nine months of successfully completing their course. In 2017, we were awarded a gold ranking in the government-led Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) for delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our undergraduate students, making us one of the highest quality providers of higher education in the UK.

Graduate Diploma in Law (full-time/part-time/online)

Our unique modular GDL spreads the workload for a better paced approach. Unlike linear GDL courses, our modular course structure is spread over two semesters, so you can ‘bank’ some exams in the first semester, therefore reducing any excessive end of course assessment burden. With a range of study options to suit you, including online (i-GDL), you can now study full-time over 12 months or part-time over 21 months.

MA Law (full-time)

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. We now offer part-time and online (i-MA Law) options over 12 months or 21 months. 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. We offer a range of study options to suit you, including online (i-LLM LPC), full-time over 11 months or part-time over 22 months.

With a clear focus on your employability, we can offer 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 Professional Training Course (full-time/part-time)

Our BPTC is designed to help you secure pupillage and prepare you for life as a barrister. You’ll get to study in small groups, with plenty of opportunities to test your advocacy skills. With our BPTC LLM you can gain additional practical experience representing real clients in courts and tribunals. Master’s degree students may also be eligible for postgraduate funding.

LLM Legal Practice (conflict resolution) (full-time/online) and LLM in Legal Practice (Intellectual Property) (online)
