The Legal Cheek View
The University of South Wales is in the heart of the Welsh capital, Cardiff. Taught in the Atlantic House campus, the LPC mostly has student approval. LPCers tell us that they like that the law school has “good lecturers” while “not [being] too expensive”.
Students get a lot of teacher face time and really feel the benefits: “Small and informal classes mean a lot of quality input from tutors,” one tells us. Unlike at many LPC providers, teaching at the USW law school takes place four days a week, and students typically study 9-5. Classes on their own take up around 16 hours each week, (eight for part timers) which is more than some undergrad degrees, and rare for an LPC.
There’s “not many electives but small class sizes so understandable”, says one LPCer. Modules include advanced business and corporate law, commercial property, wills and estate planning, advanced criminal litigation, personal injury, clinical negligence, employment and family law. You can pick three, but note that not all electives run each year and will depend on student demand – be sure to check with the university.
