New Legal Practice Course

25 November 2009


From September 2009, The University of Westminster will be offering the new style Legal Practice Course which will be divided into two stages.



The University of Westminster has been approved by the SRA to offer the new style LPC course which will be divided into two stages.

Stage One will cover the three core practice areas of litigation, property and business, as well as skills, professional conduct and regulation, and wills and the administration of estates.

Stage Two will cover the three vocational electives.  Electivce being offered include

Private Client Electives  

  • Family
  • Employment               
  • Housing          
  • PI & Clinical Negligence                     
  • Immigration *  

Commercial Electives

  • Commercial Litigation
  • E-commerce
  • Corporate Finance
  • Private Acquisitions
  • Employment
  • Entertainment & Media
  • Commercial Property
  • Commercial Law
  • Clinical Elective: we will also offer a Work Placement Clinical Elective through our pro bono unit and the CAB.


The difference with the new style LPC is that the electives can be studied alongside or after Stage One, during work-based learning or a training contract, or in some cases even before students have studied Stage One.

Dividing the LPC into two stages provides more flexibility for students as LPC providers will be able to choose whether they deliver.
