The Legal Cheek View
Home to its historic docks and The Beatles, Liverpool is an iconic city. BPP Liverpool sits in the heart of its legal district, next to the Crown Court. As one of the smaller BPP centres, it has more of a personal touch than London: “My LPC year has been demanding but a well worthy and enjoyable experience,” one unusually happy law student tells us.
As a whole, the LPC at the Liverpool campus is “very well organised”. Another LPC student recalls his first day: “I was briefed, introduced to my new class friends and given a locker key, which contained all of my personal study materials”.
The core modules and electives are “well planned” and “considered”. Teaching takes place in small study groups in a friendly atmosphere: “I now have a number of close LPC friends”. One Liverpool student says that the supportive environment has helped her develop skills that “will be valuable to any career I choose in the future (legal or otherwise)”. Others just turn up and use the course purely as a way from getting to A to B.
The choice of electives is uniform across all BPP centres. Be aware that BBP’s LPC is more tailored toward corporate careers. Even though there is a range of electives to choose from, there’s a distinct emphasis on commercial law.
