Online products for the Legal Practice Course

These products have been developed with the new LPC in mind and have been reviewed by LPC tutors throughout development.

LPC Accounts Online

LPC Accounts Online is no longer available for use.

LPC Skills Online

Five core skills must be covered on the LPC and the website is divided into these areas:

  • legal writing
  • drafting
  • interviewing and advising
  • advocacy
  • practical legal research.

Making full use of video and audio material, students are guided through over 60 varied and interactive exercises with feedback, which give them the opportunity to actively practise the skills in a range of contexts.

A further area of the site brings all of the skills together in a case study, enabling students to put each of the skills into action in a realistic and practical scenario.

Accompanied by a short text which outlines the key principles behind the skills and gives examples from practice, this all-in-one resource offers students an intensely practical and interactive environment in which to develop their skills.

Both products are designed to provide an innovative and engaging way to learn and practise. Lecturers can download a free guide to integrating LPC Skills Online into their courses here.
