Career Resources

Whether you decide to continue into further education or enter the world of work, there are a host of options available, including:

Universities & Law Schools
We have listed all of the Universities & Law Schools websites that will give you vital resources to assist you in choosing a place of study.

Vocational Education Opportunities

To become a solicitor, you must first complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC), which will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to take up a training contract with a firm of solicitors. All institutions validated to run the LPC are listed.

To become a barrister, you will study for the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), which will give you the skills and knowledge to prepare you for the more specialised training undertaken during pupillage (the next step to practising as a barrister). Details of all institutions validated to run the BPTC can be found via the link on the right.

If you don't have a qualifying law degree, you may still pursue a legal career after successfully completing the Common Professional Examination (CPE) or Diploma in Law.

Alternatively, you may decide to study for a postgraduate qualification. There are also non-law postgraduate courses available to law graduates. Take a look at our listings for Postgraduate Courses.
