After looking around for a long time earlier thread I have decided to go ahead with a masters at derby. The main issue being the price and time frame. I was quoted a price of 2460 GBP for the total program. Or 205 GBP per course. Now my question is this: If i do the LLM in commercial law, will i be able to practice as a lawyer in the UK.? Nottingham has a program at the diploma level which enables you to practise as a lawyer. earlier thread And I know that you still would need to do an additional training period of three years once you have completed the program.
