An essential component of your GDLP is the Legal Practice Experience (LPE) which is a placement in the legal profession under the supervision of a lawyer with at least three years of legal experience. The practical experience comprises a 20, 50 or 80 day placement in an approved legal workplace.
We now also offer to our students the option of a 15 day LPE placement in conjunction with the submission of an end of placement report.
Full details of the requirements for the 15 day placement + placement report can be found in the LPE Guidelines & LPE Application Form, linked below.
Please note: you can only enrol in this course once you have completed all your placement days. You will receive enrolment instructions (and a permission code) from the LPE Convenor.
