    Presentación

    Whether you aspire to work in a city practice, commercial practice, high-street firm or niche practice, the Derby LPC provides an excellent foundation for your career in law.
    This course represents the second stage of your path to becoming a solicitor, once you´ve obtained your qualifying law degree. It introduces you to the vocational skills of legal practice, which you will then develop further during your two-year training period in a solicitor’s office prior to qualification.

    Requisitos

    a recognised qualifying law degree or the CPE/Graduate Diploma in Law (unless you have an exemption).

    Programa

    The Derby LPC is both knowledge and skills based. In accordance with the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the course is divided into two stages:
    Stage one
    You’ll study and be assessed in:
    The core subjects: business law and practice; litigation (civil and criminal); and property law and practice
    Professional conduct and regulation: covering the conduct of solicitors in their professional practice and the regulation of financial services and solicitors’ accounts
    The skills of writing, drafting, practical legal research, interviewing, advising and advocacy
    Wills and administration of estates
    In addition, you’ll study certain aspects of taxation as part of these core subjects.

    Stage two
    At this stage, you’ll study and be assessed in three ‘elective’ subjects of your choice.
 You have the opportunity to concentrate on subjects which are directly relevant to your career aspirations or which are of greatest interest to you.
    The full range of elective subjects includes:
    Advanced Criminal Litigation
    Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury
    Commercial Law
    Commercial Litigation
    Commercial Property
    Employment Law
    Family Law and Practice
    Private Client (Estate Planning)

    Skills for success
    As a Derby LPC graduate, you’ll be highly marketable. Employers rate our graduates not just for their knowledge and skills but also for their work ethic and standards of professional behaviour - all the attributes which ensure they can make a valuable contribution from day one in a solicitor’s practice.
    Specialist careers advice
    During your studies you’ll have access to specialist careers tutors and a dedicated legal careers advisor. We can also arrange professional legal mentoring, where you are attached to a local practitioner for careers advice and support.
    We run regular careers evenings, talks and presentations where guest speakers from the profession provide invaluable advice on CV-building skills, interview techniques and what firms are seeking in successful training contract applicants.
    Continuing support
    Our Careers and Employment Service offers support from day one of your course - and this continues once you’ve completed your studies too.
