Course description

If you want to be a solicitor, this is the course for you. By combining a qualifying LLB and the Legal Practice Course (LPC), successfully completing the undergraduate Masters in Law Honours programme means you can walk straight into your solicitor’s training contract - and because you’ll qualify for funding from Student Finance England for all four years, there’s no need to find extra funding to take the LPC. As well as building practical legal knowledge, you’ll develop the communication skills you’ll need to succeed, and you will have the opportunity to take part in two supervised pro-bono legal clinics, one general and one business-focused, for invaluable hands-on experience of life as a solicitor. Graduates will leave our course with the extensive legal knowledge and key transferable skills that are highly valued by employers. Due to the level of analytical skills acquired, our graduates can look forward to working in a range of legal professions; as solicitors, barristers, law tutors, or in graduate programmes for large organisations such as the police. Our students are valued highly by employers due to their aptitude and skills profile. They have an impressive track record of gaining graduate level jobs or professional training contracts. Some of our eminent alumni include judges, Queen’s Counsel, barristers and solicitors across the UK, Europe and around the world, CEOs, business leaders and industrialists, entrepreneurs and business owners, senior public servants such as civil servants, politicians, senior police and local government officers, senior academics and researchers at all levels, authors of many academic works, leading voluntary sector workers, board representatives and trustees. Successful completion of the MLaw enables you to go on a training contract in legal practice, should you wish to pursue a career as a solicitor.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.
