Level 4 Certificate of Higher Education in Law & Legal Practice

About Course


  • Law and Legal Practice (BA) has been designed to cover the fundamentals of law and the linked areas of legal practice required to enter the legal profession.
  • This new programme will prepare students to sit the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exams and has been designed around this national framework. It is entirely focused on employment or self-employment within legal practice. This can only enhance the student’s prospects and make them more competitive within the legal profession’s recruitment programmes.
  • There has already been a high level of engagement with professional organisations for the existing law programmes and this engagement continues throughout the year. Local law firms such as Peter Lynn and Partners, Graham Evans and Partners, JCP and DJM have been consulted and work with the team to create opportunities for placements and internships for the students, with a number of graduates continuing into employment.
