OxILP offers part-time LPC via podcasts

The Oxford Institute of Legal Practice (OxILP) is launching a part-time legal practice course (LPC) in September for the first time.

The two-year course will offer lectures via a podcast to allow students greater flexibility, with MP3 players loaned to students who do not own one already.

In addition to the podcast lectures which will be recorded from the full-time course part-time students will attend weekend lectures 11 times a year. The course content will be the same as the full-time option.

The part-time LPC is already fully subscribed at 25 students, said OxILP director Julie Brannan. 200 students take the full-time one-year LPC at OxILP, which is the law school of both Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University.

BPP, the University of Westminster, Nottingham Law School and the College of Law also offer a part-time LPC.

The OxILP course will cost 4,375 a year, half the cost of the full-time LPC, so over two years the cost will be the same.
