This collaboration makes Reading the ideal place to pursue your ambition to become a lawyer.


Conversion programmes

The University of Law offers a number of law conversion courses, which offer you a pathway to progress onto become a solicitor or barrister. In an increasingly competitive job market, a background in another degree subject — together with a law conversion course —can help to set you apart from other graduates in terms of transferable skills and knowledge.

Legal Practice Course (LPC)

The LPC is the tried and tested route to solicitor practice in England and Wales, bridging the gap between academic study and training in a law firm.

The LPC represents the next stage of your training once you have gained a qualifying law degree or converted your non-law degree through the Graduate Diploma in Law.
