The City Law School (CLS) celebrated the outstanding achievement of its current and graduating students with a prize-giving ceremony on 1st December. The event took place in the Great Hall.
CLS Dean, Professor Carl Stychin, Professor Jason Chuah and Professor Peter Hungerford-Welch, were on hand to present prizes and congratulate the awardees on their accomplishments.
Seventy-six prizes were awarded to winners both studying on, or who have graduated from, the LLB and Graduate LLB (GELLB) degree courses, as well as eleven graduates from the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) programme. There were also 27 prize-winners on the School’s professional programmes, including those who studied for the Bar Professional Training Certificate (BPTC); the Legal Practice Course (LPC); on Pro Bono programmes; and the Advanced Criminal Litigation Option. Commenting on the high level of achievement, Professor Stychin said: “As Dean of the School, the annual Prize-Giving ceremony is one of the highlights of the year. It is an opportunity for us to celebrate success but also for us as a community to express our pride in the accomplishments of all of our students while singling out for special commendation those who have been awarded prizes.”

The Legal Practice Course (LPC), also known as the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice is the final vocational stage for becoming a solicitor in England and Wales. The course is designed to provide a bridge between academic study and training in a law firm. It is a one-year, full-time (or two-year, part-time) course. The course is usually taken after a law degree, but a large minority take the course after studying a different subject at university and taking a conversion course called the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL/CPE). The LPC is regulated through the Law Society of England and Wales.
