Real world value

Karl Brown“The Legal Practice Course was a very practical course which gave me the opportunity to hone my skills in areas such as interviewing, negotiating, communicating and undertaking legal research. These skills were very relevant and invaluable when I started as a trainee solicitor and enable me to interact with clients and also other solicitors.”

“My experience at UWE Bristol allowed me to start my legal career with not just practical legal skills but also knowledge of the business side of working in a law firm.”
