Nottingham Trent Adds LL.M. Option to Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC)

BPTC students now have the opportunity to pursue an LL.M. during the one-year course

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has announced that it has added an LL.M. option to the school's Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).

Students in the one-year BPTC now have the opportunity of working towards an LL.M. during the program. To complete the LL.M., students will have to complete a dissertation or undertake a practical legal experience component. 

Nottingham Trent's BPTC is a program that allows graduates to practice as barristers in England. It covers modules in litigation, advocacy, professional ethics, and more.

Students who do not wish to pursue the LL.M. can still study for the traditional BPTC award.

For more information, please see the Nottingham Trent news release announcing the addition of the LL.M. to the school's BPTC program.
