Anglia Law School Reviews – what do you think?
What do you think of Anglia Ruskin University’s LPC?
Here are some reviews we’ve found from Anglia Law School’s LPC students:
“The LPC is a fast pace course which starts as it means to go on. Whilst this can be slightly daunting at first, at Anglia Ruskin this is greatly helped by the supportive and approachable staff. The tutors have great experience of what life is like in legal practice which is always very useful in helping one to see the long term goal. Choosing Anglia Ruskin over a larger provider has meant I have received a much more hands on learning experience through small group workshops, which has certainly helped my understanding and means any problems with a particular topic can be resolved as they arise. The facilities are excellent; there are designated LPC rooms, a common room and a computer room which are all very useful. I have learnt a lot on this course, which is vital in helping to convert what is learnt at undergraduate level to something that is applicable to everyday legal scenarios, and hopefully now I am as ready as I can be to start an eagerly awaited Training Contract!”
Sarah Mizen, LPC Student (from Anglia Ruskin University’s website)
“ Anglia Ruskin’s Legal Practice Course fosters a brilliant atmosphere amongst its students, and there is a good rapport between students and staff. This can help to keep you going when the workload gets tough – though the workload is always manageable, partly due to the course being well organised and the many different units and assignments being spread sensibly across the year.
All the LPC tutors at Anglia Ruskin have experience of working as solicitors in practice; some tutors are currently practising solicitors who come in once or twice a week to share their expertise in their specialist area. This can be extremely beneficial, ensuring that the course maintains its practical focus and keeps students up to date on the latest legal and procedural developments.
The newly-built Faculty Building, in which the LPC is taught at Chelmsford, provides a clean and comfortable working environment. It includes an IT room and common room, along with several classrooms, which are reserved solely for use by LPC students. Each classroom contains an interactive whiteboard. The building also houses a very convincing mock courtroom, which is used on the LPC to teach Advocacy.”
