Nottingham Law School is one of the largest and most diverse law schools in the UK; we take great pride in our outstanding and long-established national and international reputation for excellence in legal education. With our accomplished research division and close links with the industry, we ensure that Nottingham Law School is at the forefront of modern legal education. We have an unrivalled reputation for providing innovative postgraduate courses and training. You will be taught by a unique mix of qualified lawyers with a proven track record in practice and legal education. Our focus on practical skills, award-winning pro bono scheme and dedicated careers and recruitment service has helped to keep our training contract and pupillage rates consistently high. We also have a number of competitive scholarships for our postgraduate and professional courses.

Graduate Diploma in Law (full-time or distance learning)



This conversion course for non-law graduates offers you academic study with a practical focus. The full time course is taught in small groups, allowing interactive learning with peer and tutor support. Our innovative distance learning course (with some compulsory campus-based weekend sessions) has comprehensive support, highly valued by past students.

LLM Legal Practice Course (full-time or part-time)



At Nottingham Law School we are confident that our LPC will provide you with the best training currently available. Our LPC has been enhanced so that the successful completion of all its elements will result in the award of a Master's degree: LLM Legal Practice Course. As well as providing you with an internationally recognised qualification, you will leave Nottingham Law School with enhanced insight into the legal profession and better equipped to succeed. Students who do not wish to study for the full Master's award can still study for the 'traditional' LPC award. However, all students will benefit from the enhanced LPC.

LLM Bar Professional Training Course (full time)



Nottingham Law School’s BPTC is designed to equip you with the core practical skills and procedural knowledge needed to succeed in the fast-changing environment of practice at the Bar. We have enhanced our BPTC so that the successful completion of all its elements will result in the award of a Masters degree – LLM Bar Professional Training Course. Particular emphasis is placed on the skill of advocacy. The BPTC is taught entirely by qualified practitioners, and utilises the same integrated and interactive teaching methods as all of the School’s other professional courses. Essentially, students learn by doing. Students are encouraged to realise their full potential through practice and feedback.
