London Metropolitan University (LPC)

The Legal Cheek View

London Metropolitan University is situated in its new home at Holloway Road. You can’t argue with its LPC fees, which are very reasonable for a London university. The value for money is just as good, according to one former student: “I thoroughly enjoyed the time that I spent at London Met, and upon entering my training contract I felt totally prepared and able to take on the role of a trainee solicitor”.

Many LPC students who plan to be future City stars fork out thousands for a place at London providers with close ties with corporate law firms. At just over £10K, doing the LPC at London Met will keep your bank account healthier.

London Met also offers a mixed spread of electives. From commercial law, commercial mediation and intellectual property, to family, housing and child law, LPCers have plenty to choose from. Students chasing the transactional and deal-making careers might feel slightly disappointed, though. Unlike other providers in the city, the Met LPC doesn’t offer a standalone corporate elective such as mergers and acquisitions. Still, one LPCer gives the law school a fair “8/10”. Another notes the “excellent preparation” for practice provided by the Met’s tutors.

The LPC is currently taught at the Holloway site, which includes a mock courtroom, near Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium. There’s also a mooting competition every year, regularly judged by Lord Reed.
