The Law Faculty at UWE (University of the West of England) has, once again received the rating of 'excellent' for the LPC (Legal Practice Course) from The Law Society. The LPC Board has given its approval to the Assessors' Report which was based on visits to the Faculty last November.

The Dean of the Faculty, Alan Bensted, says, "We are delighted that the high quality of our courses has once again been ratified. Much of the credit for this goes to our staff who are both experienced practitioners and excellent teachers."

Only two other institutions in the UK have retained their 'excellent' rating this year.

Paul Rylance, Associate Dean and Head of Professional Legal Studies, said,
"This renewal of our excellent rating for the fourth consecutive occasion taken together with the explosive growth in demand for places on our LPC clearly confirms our status as a market leader in the field of professional vocational education."

The Faculty of Law has also been rated as excellent by the HEFCE, the highest possible quality assessment rating.

The Legal Practice Course is the postgraduate vocational training course for those wishing to qualify as solicitors.
