University of Law at Newcastle

Thanks to a new arrangement, students can study The University of Law’s Legal Practice Course (LPC), Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), Masters of Arts in Law (MA Law) and Solicitor Qualifying Exam (SQE) courses at Newcastle University.

If you are looking for a career in law, you can now study ULaw’s Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Solicitor Qualifying Exam (SQE) courses to become a solicitor at Newcastle University.

If you’re looking to convert to law after completing an undergraduate degree in another discipline you can also study ULaw’s Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) or Master of Arts in Law (MA Law).

These programmes are delivered by the University of Law who are responsible for providing the educational content, teaching and support of both programmes.

Legal Practice Course (LPC)

As a law graduate aiming to become a solicitor, the LPC represents the final stage of your training. You will study the LPC after gaining a qualifying law degree or the Graduate Diploma in Law (law conversion course). This bridges the gap between academic study and training in a law firm.

Find out more about the University of Law’s LPC.

Solicitor Qualifying Exam (SQE) Courses

From September 2021, the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) will be phased in to become the new centralised way to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. It will eventually replace the current route to practice – the Legal Practice Course (LPC). ULaw has developed a range of new courses that will prepare you for a career as a solicitor, as well as SQE success.

Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)

The GDL is a specially designed conversion course onto legal study. It is the first step for graduates wanting to convert to law after completing a non-law undergraduate degree.

Master of Arts in Law (MA Law)

The MA Law is a specially designed postgraduate degree for non-law graduates seeking a career in the legal professions.

As an internationally recognised qualification, a Law Master’s is a great addition to your portfolio.
