Univeristy of Law to Offer LL.M. With Bar Training

The British program will add an LL.M. to its existing Bar Professional Training Course

From September 2017 the University of Law will offer an LL.M. that helps students prepare for the bar exam.

The new BPTC LL.M. will be integrated into the bar course so students will earn their LL.M. at the same time as completing their BPTC program.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to advise and represent clients in the fields of family, house and immigration law. 

This professional experience will be matched with academic support via a Masters supervisor, offering a reflective learning process.

The new program is offered full-time in Birmingham, Leeds or London Bloomsbury or part-time in Birmingham or London Bloomsbury.

More information is available on the program website.
