Subject

Law

The Master of Law and Practice (MLP) is an exciting Masters degree that provides a clear route to professional qualification. The degree gives you an exemption from the Legal Practice Course (LPC), which is the second vocational stage of training you need to qualify as a solicitor, so it could see you well on your way to your chosen profession.The four-year Master of Law and Practice (MLP) course helps you meet all the academic requirements before going on to start your legal training, so once you graduate successfully, you can move on to train directly with a legal firm.By studying law in this way, youll be able to access tuition fee loans and other financial support, so you wont have to fund a separate LPC course on top of your LLB(Hons).Having said that, we keep things flexible. So if after your second year you decide youd rather do the three-year LLB(Hons) then thats fine. Pass your LLB(Hons) and youll have a law degree that qualifies you to go on to train as a solicitor or barrister. To do that, youll have to complete a separate professional practice course, as well as a training contract or pupillage.Whatever you choose to do, our Partners in Law scheme is a pretty unique service that could give you all the support you need. We can provide you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through our links with regional and internationally renowned legal firms.Firms that are currently part of Partners in Law include Pinsent Masons, DLA Piper, Walker Morris, Eversheds, Hammonds, Chadwick Lawrence, Armitage Sykes, Ramsdens Solicitors, Eaton Smith, Ridley and Hall, Switalskis, Wilkinson Woodward and Kirklees Council Legal Services.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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.
