LPC (2017/18): £10,900 FT
We're impressed by just how career-focused Staffordshire is: classes are delivered in 'Practice Offices' designed to evoke life in a law firm, and many modules are designed with input from local legal employers. This does mean that the course is tailored to the needs of employers around Stoke, but we doubt that it's so specialised as to prevent students from obtaining training contracts elsewhere. Staffordshire's also very flexible about how students study the LPC, even to the extent of allowing them to do 90% of the course online, so it's also worth a thought if you'll be juggling the LPC with other commitments.
