AS Law



In England and Wales, there are two types of lawyers and they are known as barristers and solicitors also known as the legal profession. They may both be considered legal personnel but there is different training that is required for each of these professions.


To become a solicitor, it is usual to have a law degree, although those with a degree in a subject other than Law can do an extra year’s training in core legal subjects, and take the Common Professional Examination (CPE), or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL).

The next step is to take part in the Legal Practice Course (LPC), which involves training in skills such as client interviewing, negotiation, advocacy, drafting documents, and legal research.
