LL.M. - Advanced Legal Practice
The LLM in Advanced Legal Practice is designed to promote the acquisition of legal knowledge in a practical context and will be of interest to both solicitors and barristers. The programme will also interest students who are enrolling on the BVC or LPC programmes at Northumbria and postgraduate students who have completed the Law Society or Bar Council postgraduate vocational training programmes but have not as yet entered practice and wish to improve their employment prospects.
The programme is designed to build on the postgraduate study, which will have already been undertaken by participants for the Law Society final exam, Legal Practice Course or Bar Vocational Course.
In fact, successful completion of any of these programmes is recognised as partial completion of the requirements for this programme. The programme also counts towards continuing professional development requirements for the relevant period and provides an alternative to attendance at short programmes. The programme has a flexible structure. It is designed specifically for students who do not wish to attend classes or who are unable to attend due to geographical location.
