Department

Manchester Law School

The LLB in Legal Practice is a law degree with a difference. It is a distance learning degree that enables you to combine essential legal knowledge with practical legal skills. It is very flexible; you will gain a law degree, which provides the necessary foundations of legal knowledge to enable graduates to go on to a career as a solicitor or barrister and you will achieve all the academic requirements to become a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer.

The degree is taught via supported distance learning, part-time over four years, giving you the flexibility to balance your current commitments with your study. All of your study is directly relevant to your future role in the legal profession. 

We welcome applications from those with appropriate evidence achieved through their paid or voluntary work, as well as those with recent academic qualifications.

Your career prospects after the course

A law degree is thorough, rigorous and attractive to a range of employers.

Many of our students go on to qualify as solicitors and barristers, or secure work in legal services, but others have found work in charities, the civil service and IT.

You could also pursue further academic research, or a career as a lecturer.

Further information about the study of Law

Professional regulators in the legal sector are currently conducting an extensive consultation about legal education and training.

This includes review about the routes and qualifications to become a barrister or solicitor.

The final decision on the BPTC is due to be made in Spring 2017, in time for the new approach to training to start taking effect from the 2018/19 academic year.

Applications will commence for the new programmes in Autumn 2017.

The current route of a QLD or the GDL and LPC to become a solicitor will remain in place until August 2019.

Students who have started the current route (QLD/GDL and LPC) before September 2019, will have the choice between whether to qualify under the old route (subject to availability) or qualify under the new route.

The final date to qualify under the old route to qualification will be 2024.
