What will I learn?

The LLM in Legal Practice and Advanced Drafting combines our Legal Practice Course (LPC) with an independent learning module, to enhance your essential legal skills and give you a valuable master’s level qualification. The LPC is essential if you want to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. Adding this extra module, to upgrade the qualification to an LLM, makes you even more valuable to a potential or existing employer.

As a postgraduate student on a professional programme at the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, you will be part of a globally recognised law school, with a thriving academic environment committed to excellence in teaching, and offering an exceptional student experience.

The LPC completes the academic requirements to work as a solicitor, meaning you can then move into training with a law firm. Successfully completing a drafting project to gain the LLM will show your enhanced legal skills to a potential or existing employer to boost your career prospects. We have an established work placement programme, enabling students to secure training contracts and paralegal positions.
