The Centre for Legal Practice
Welcome to the Centre's homepage.
The Centre for Legal Practice was established within the Department of Law in 1992 to
provide courses of instruction and to undertake research relevant to the practice of law.
It's main teaching activities are the delivery of the Legal
Practice Course, which is currently assessed by the Law Society as "Good",
as well as delivering the Graduate Diploma in Law which enables non-law graduates to satisfy the
academic stage of training.
LEGAL PRACTICE COURSE AND GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN LAW
At the end of the 2005/6 academic year, the Legal Practice Course and
the Graduate Diploma in Law, previously provided by the University of
Exeter through the Centre for Legal Practice, transferred to the University
of Plymouth. Following a two day visit to the University of Plymouth
in November 2005 the validation panels of the Law Society and Joint Academic
Stage Board recommended approval to the Legal Practice Course Board and
the Joint Academic Stage Board of the running of the Graduate Diploma
in Law and Legal Practice Course at the University of Plymouth from 2006.
This represents the confidence of the legal professional bodies in the
University of Plymouth to run these courses.
