BPP LLM Master of Laws

The Master of Laws is available at BPP’s London Holborn location. The course offers a range of specialist areas unique to other LLM providers.

This means that the LLMs allow you to maintain other commitments. To offer even more flexibility, BPP has three available start dates for this course – September, January and May.

LPC LLM

An LLM is available alongside both the Legal Practice Course for those who have their LLB and the Graduate Diploma in Law for those who have obtained undergraduate degrees in other disciplines. One of the benefits of undertaking the LLM Legal Practice or the LLM (Law Conversion) is that it incorporates the availability to obtain government postgraduate funding of up to £10,906. This will ease the potential financial burden of paying for the course independently.

Authorized by Solicitors’ Regulation Authority for the LPC components, BPP’s LLM conversion course is available in six locations: Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, London Holborn and Manchester. Available both full time for a maximum of 12 months and part-time for a maximum of 24.

BPP boasts a high rate of both training contract and employment attainment post-course with 96.5% of postgraduate law students have secured employment. In addition, BPP has a career guarantee which highlights that if you do not secure a training contract within six months of completing the LLM Legal Practice (Solicitors) then you can enhance your legal CV with a further course free of charge.

LLM Law Conversion

This LLM conversion course gives non-law graduates all the resources required to be able to undertake the LPC or BPTC as it stands as an alternative to the traditional Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). Available in six locations as well as online: Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, London Waterloo and Manchester.

This course allows non-law graduates to convert to law and be able to pursue a career as either a barrister or solicitor afterwards. The difference between this and the traditional GDL course is that a the end of it, you attain a masters qualification on top.

In this competitive legal job market, it is invaluable to have access to a good careers service, and BPP has a dedicated team available to help support you on your journey. You can receive careers help both face-to-face and online via email to suit your needs.

How BPP LLMs Taught & Assessed?

To qualify with an LLM, you will have to produce a 10,000-word dissertation on the core module topic and three elective modules or two core modules and two electives (if you choose to undertake LLM Chinese Investment and Business Law or LLM Islamic Finance and Business Law). Electives include Environmental Law and Practice, International Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Law and The Law of Investigations and Practice.

Each LLM is taught and led by legal specialists and professional lawyers in that respective subject area and from various legal systems. LLM modules are assessed through a memorandum of advice (30%) and an unseen examination (70%). In addition, as highlighted above learners must complete one 10,000-word dissertation based on their core module. Each LLM is delivered face-to-face plus resources and support available online.
