About the Courses section
The undergraduate and postgraduate stages of study are key to a successful legal career; they are compulsory, of course, but you also need to do well in them in order to succeed in your dream of securing a training contract or pupillage. Learn more here about the LLB, LLM, GDL, LPC and BPTC, and search for specific courses.

Those who have completed their conduct and solicitors accounts exams on the LPC, gleeful in the thought of never having to take such an exam again, may be in for a shock.
