BPP University Law School to Launch LL.M. Programs in Legal Practice

The new LL.M.s, designed for those wishing to become solicitors and barristers, will launch in September

The UK's BPP University Law School has announced plans to launch two new LL.M.s programs in legal practice, aimed at students looking to become barristers and solicitors.

The LL.M. Legal Practice (Solicitors) and the LL.M. Legal Practice (Barristers) will both launch in September. They'll feature variable program lengths and program delivery modes. Full-time students can complete the LL.M.s in as few as nine months; various part-time options are also available.

Course content for the LL.M. Legal Practice (Solicitors) covers an array of topics. Available modules include Business Law & Practice, Litigation, Property Law & Practice, and Immigration Law, among others. The LL.M. Legal Practice (Barristers) combines topical modules with the school's Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).

The programs can be pursued in one of BPP's centers in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.

The new LL.M.s qualify for a postgraduate loan of up to £10,280 from the Student Loans Company.
