The new £35 million building is part of a £167 million investment which is transforming DMU’s Leicester City Campus. About the courses Both the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and the Legal Practice Course (LPC) have face-to-face study sessions held at Leicester Institute of Legal Practice. There are five weekend study sessions in Year One of the GDL and four in Year Two. The LPC requires more face-to-face contact due to the skills element of the syllabus. It commences with a five-day foundation course followed by nine weekend teaching sessions in both the first and second years
