  • I think its great to have an accelerated LPC for Magic Circle firms however I did the LPC part-time over 2 years whilst working full time at a City firm. And it worked for me great.
    Its up to an individual how they decide to study the LPC.

  • "Why would anyone actually pay for the LPC in this day and age?
    Without sponsorship one will not get a training contract."
    @Anonymous who wrote this, you are easily the biggest moron on this website right now.
    Even using "one" in order to display your superior grasp of the english language cannot hide the fact that you obviously spend your days justifying your pointless existence by posting your inane tripe on websites.
    Please do us all a favour and just take your laptop, and throw it out of the window, maybe dont let go of it first.

  • ! The LPC is a professional qualification. Of course it should be designed for the convenience of the firm rather than the student! The LPC could quite easily be taught full time in 6 months - it just means working 9 to 5 in the classroom, and doing homework each evening, as they do in comparable professions. (Of course, in comparable professions you would be more likely to have a three year training contract in which you go off for a few months each year to complete the qualifications. Which if applied to law would in turn mean that law firms could recruit a year in advance instead of two years, because they would not need to worry about their trainees completing the LPC first.)
    I have no sympathy whatsoever for Zainul Jussab's position. There is no question of "fairness" here; I would have thought that an undergraduate who was genuinely committed to a legal career would welcome the opportunity to get the LPC over and done with as quickly as possible. Sounds like a typical university society president trying to justify the position.
