Are you doing LPC with LLM from BPP? If yes then please let me know your experiences as I was suppose to start the course on February 2022 but everything went Wong and BPP is having a lot of internal issues the enrollment team and finance team not helpful at all.

Hi Brahiti,
The answer is 'no'. I have met partners from law firms in person and asked them about LLM. One of them from Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP who visited Exeter said that if a candidate feels like he/she needs to or wants to do an LLM, then it's up to them to pursue that but an LLM won't help or hurt their applications. As a current LLM LPC student at BPP, I opted for an LLM since it's a free top-up for the LPC, as offered by BPP.

As an aspiring lawyer myself who has just graduated from Exeter with a 2.1 LLB and straightway embarked onto LPC LLM at BPP, I simply considered an LLM adds value to my CV next to my LLB to showcase to potential employers while offering this free opportunity to complete a professional project (5000-word thesis) in my legal area of interest. Besides, as a proud Brit who is classed as a Home student, an LLM makes me eligible to borrow the postgrad loan from Student Finance England, should I want to or even need to just in case. Hoping I have explained everything there is to talk about opting for LPC vs LPC LLM.
Wishing you all the best whichever course you go on to pursue at BPP: LPC or LPC LLM.
