Our Legal Practice Course (LPC) develops the legal skills and knowledge needed for a successful law career.
60 leading law firms exclusively send their trainee solicitors to study the LPC with us and we are the preferred choice for over 150 organisations. We work with firms across the law profession to develop the best possible education for future solicitors, enhancing your employability through dedicated support and placement opportunities. So you can be confident that our LPC will help you launch a successful legal career.
Preparing you for practice
The BPP University PGDL is designed to help you make a smooth transition from being a non-law graduate into a career in law. We don't just give you an excellent qualification, we give you an insight into life in practice, so you enter the next stage of your training more informed, more prepared and more effective, and able to demonstrate a higher competency when applying for training contracts and pupillages.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Law is awarded by BPP University and is recognised as completion of the academic stage by the SRA and BSB.
When you have passed your PGDL, you can proceed to our LPC, the next step to becoming a solicitor. Or you can apply for our BTC, the next step to becoming a barrister.
How the programme is taught
We assume you have no prior knowledge of law when you start your PGDL, so you get a full induction programme and a high level of support from day one. This includes outstanding learning materials and online resources. All study materials are included in the fee. All resources have online equivalents.
You'll be taught by our experienced legal professionals and academics with time split evenly between interactive live workshops as well as regular consolidation sessions and a wealth of online resources. For full details view our Locations tab.
What you will experience in the classroom
BPP University's ethos is learning by doing. Classes are designed with an interactive focus, based on discussions, debates and resolving practical case studies. You will learn the academic knowledge, but as importantly you will learn how it's applied in practice, with a logical approach, presenting your arguments persuasively and in a structured manner.
You will study up to 21 hours a week consisting of live and online lectures and classes dependent on location and start date. Tutorials are taught in groups of around 18 students, giving you a high level of student/tutor contact time.
All our students also have a Personal Tutor and access to a Student Advisor, should you need any guidance or additional support outside of class time.
Independent research essay options
We offer a wide range of titles, and will always consider individual topics suggested by students. Current options include intellectual property, succession, company law, family law, housing law, medical law and public international law.
Personalise your PGDL timetable
BPP gives you more control over the way you study with face-to-face, online distance learning, or a combination of both available. Classes are offered morning, afternoon, evening and weekends. Face-to-face PGDL classes are taught on two set days per week during the core teaching term, at the following centres, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge and Liverpool.
You can start in January or September. For full-time study, both options take nine months. Or if you choose part-time and start in January, you'll finish in 18 months – ready to start the LPC or BTC in September. If you start part-time in September the programme takes two academic years.
With the BPP PGDL, you're given access to an unrivalled range of additional modules, designed to get you ahead and give you the edge in interviews. Highlights include:
- Company law module
- Further specialist law modules – start specialising early in areas such as Intellectual Property or Public International Law, so you can demonstrate more expertise than other graduates.

- Mandarin Chinese – Gain an insight into the language used in one of the world's most important markets with free Mandarin Chinese lessons (London only).
