We offer competitive scholarships to UK, EU and international students for both our postgraduate and professional courses.

Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)

For non-Law graduates interested in becoming a solicitor or barrister, our GDL is the stepping stone to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), and a career as a solicitor or barrister thereafter. The course is approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board. You can study our GDL full-time or by distance learning.

LLM Legal Practice Course (LLM LPC)

Our enhanced Legal Practice Course (LPC) will provide you with the best training currently available. The successful completion of all elements of the LLM LPC will result in the award of a Masters degree, as well as our internationally recognised LPC qualification. You’ll leave us with a strong insight into the profession, and be well-placed to succeed in the legal sector. You can study our LLM LPC on a full or part-time basis.

LLM Bar Professional Training Course (LLM BPTC)

Nottingham Law School has a proven track record in practical skills training and is one of only a few educational establishments validated by the Bar Standards Board to deliver the BPTC. We offer a one-year LLM BPTC, which means you have the option to also gain a masters qualification as part of your course. Our pupillage rate is consistently above the national average.

Masters of Law (LLM)

Our Masters of Law (LLM) courses allow you to explore the areas of Law that most interests you. You will acquire valuable skills that provide an excellent progression platform into a wide range of challenging and rewarding careers. Our flexible approach means our courses are taught across a variety of study modes: full-time, part-time and distance learning.
