Published on


The University of Liverpool is pleased to announce a new arrangement with the University of Law (ULaw) to offer full-time Legal Practice Course and Graduate Diploma in Law programmes in the city.

From September 2018, students can study both of these ULaw courses at the University of Liverpool’s campus.

The Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) is ULaw's law conversion course, while the Legal Practice Course (LPC) offers an industry-focused postgraduate and professionally accredited programme that gives students the essential skills to train as solicitors.

Professor Warren Barr, Head of Liverpool Law School, said: “Preparing our students for work in the legal profession is at the heart of all that we do and so we are delighted that, from September 2018, students can study for the University of Law’s LPC and GDL programmes here at the University of Liverpool campus.

“This exciting arrangement can give our students the edge, and adds to the already strong professional and academic offer here at the University of Liverpool.”

Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor & CEO at The University of Law, said: “I’m very proud to be working with the University of Liverpool to offer our law courses to even more students, ensuring that everyone has access to excellent legal education with sector leading student outcomes.

“With this arrangement, ULaw looks forward to working closely with the University of Liverpool to train and equip students with the skills needed to thrive in a competitive market.”

Students who enrol to study ULaw’s programmes at the University of Liverpool will be provided with all of its student offerings, including its award-winning pro bono service. Students will also gain access to ULaw’s prestigious Careers and Employability service, which highlights the University’s strong employability track record of 96%.
