At The university of law I did a three year llb course ( I am in my last year). In the first year and second year you do 7 closed book exams. These exams were hard and tough and there was a lot of content to cover in a small amount of time. The teachers were supportive, some more than others.

In the final year there are two open book exams where you have to prepare two lever arch folders and take it in the exam with you. These exams were very hard and required a lot of critical thinking and analysis.

There is also a course work in the last term which required 15 workshop take which include practical skill, that you would be ask if you were working in a firm e.g. draft a will etc.

The university also offers employability lectures alongside the llb course. There careers office is helpful nowever I feel that it is narrow where consider a career outside a barrister and solicitor.

For the LPC there are generally two institutions of choice- university of law or BPP. My year at Ulaw has been different from what I expected due to changes to the exam format, which changed from open book to closed, causing confusion. Although the staff are helpful and good teachers, the overall organisation for the postgraduate course has been poor. For future students however, I would hope all the issues have been ironed out.

The addition of a masters degree on top of the LPC has been useful, though.

I'm doing the 7 month LPC. It's rather tough and intense, and the subjects can be quite tedious at times, but the course itself is well taught and the tutors are all very approachable, friendly and supportive.
