The LPC is a compulsory vocational course for all intending solicitors. The Oxford Brookes School of Law (incorporating OXILP) offers the course in full-time and part-time modes. The Oxford Brookes LPC has achieved the highest SRA grading across all assessment areas.
Oxford Brookes prides itself on the level of one-to-one support it can offer its students. Due to its relatively small size, in premises centred in and around Headington Hill Hall and has a friendly, collegiate atmosphere where students are treated as individuals.
The course is widely recognised as of high academic quality, and has the highest rating from the regulatory body. All tutors are qualified solicitors or barristers who practised in the areas in which they teach. We include timetabled careers sessions and all students without training contracts are allocated an individual careers tutor. Regular optional careers events are organised, often with practitioners. The course is designed to maximise students' employability, and significant careers support is provided. It includes a distinctive emphasis on the law firm as a business, developed in conjunction with local law firms. We operate an award winning pro-bono scheme, in which students volunteer to work with local legal charities, such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, Bail for Immigration Detainees and AMICUS. The Institute also has an active sport and social agenda.
Students who successfully complete the LPC will have the opportunity to top up their LPC to an LLM in Legal Practice.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a qualified lawyer in the USA and certain other jurisdictions and wish to practise as a solicitor in England and Wales please see our Qualfied Lawyers Transfer Test programme (QLTT). This course is run in Oxford, but is also offered in London and the USA in partnership with QLTT international.
