Law and legal studies evaluation:
The LPC is currently part of the process of qualifying as a solicitor. It builds on the law degree/graduate diploma in law, and prepares students for their work based training with a law firm. It is an intensive, highly interactive, skills-based course. Assessment is by examination, coursework and live skills assessment. The Legal Practice Course (LPC) offers intensive, post graduate-level study to those who wish to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. To become fully qualified after completion of the LPC, you will need to undertake a two year training contract, which is a period of recognised work-based training. The LPC will ensure that you acquire the skills, knowledge and attitude to prepare you for the start of the training contract. It will equip you to deal with the demands that are likely to be made of you in practice, and lay the foundation for your future practice as a solicitor by encouraging habits of competence, confidence and professionalism.
