Legal Practice Course

The practical application used in workshops and skills sessions prepare you for working in a firm or in-house legal departments.

Why did you choose to study the LPC?

This is the final step before beginning a training contract leading on to becoming a qualified solicitor.

Why did you choose The City Law School?

I was lucky enough to have a friend who completed the course a year before I began who had nothing but excellent reviews of City Law School and the unique way the LPC was taught.

What makes City unique?

This included interactive but fun workshops and unparallel access to lecturers guiding you through the process. As a very practical course, City has found a way to strike a balance between challenging application of law in a very enjoyable environment.

Did you take part in any extracurricular activities?

I took part in the Mentoring scheme which I still have access to post completion of the course.

How has studying the LPC helped you to take the next steps in your career?

Confidence by far in excelling during my training contract period. The practical application used in workshops and skills sessions prepare you for working in a firm or in-house legal departments.

What do you enjoy most about studying in London?

It's London! Such an amazing city with no shortage of things to do or places to eat.

What advice or tips would you give to future LPC students?

This will be repeated time and time again....stay on top of the work and do not fall behind. The course moves very quickly and all-nighters don't work. If you don't understand, ask and ask again.

In terms of exams, understand the question and you already have the answer.
