This programme is aimed primarily at those who are already in legal practice, although in some cases students are permitted to begin the course alongside the start of their legal career. As such, students are drawn from, and continue to progress in, a wide range of legal professions, including English solicitors and barristers, Pakistani advocates, Bahamian counsel and advocates, and Seychellian attorneys-at-law, as well as university lecturers in legal practice.
Some students run their own legal practice, in partnership, or are fee-earners, but we have also welcomed in-house counsel working, for instance, in international finance. As a part-time course requiring reflection on professional practice, our normal expectation is that applicants will be in full-time professional employment during the course.
Free language courses for students - the Open Module
Free language courses are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students on many of our courses, and can be taken as a credit on some courses.
Please note that the free language courses are not available if you are:
