  • Very disappointing Nelson

    Nelson Mandela - clearly you work in one of the corporate slaughterhouses, so the LPC would have felt like a waste of time for you as paginating isn't really covered. However, there are plenty of City firms where you can advocate and use many of the other skills taught on the LPC. The LPC does not just prepare you for your job, it gives you the basic skills you need to be a solicitor: a professional person, an officer of the court, someone whose job it is to help uphold the rule of law and set an example of integrity to others. And yes, while criminal litigation and probate are unlikely to crop up in corporate practice, to deserve the professional title of 'solicitor' the public expect us to have at least a very basic understanding of these areas.

    The LPC provides just that. Furthermore probate, and perhaps even criminal law, will almost certainly crop up in our personal lives or those of our friends and family from time to time. Specialisation is an inveitable consequence of the develpment of our economy and legal services industry, and is a good thing, but we must not lose sight of what we, as solicitors, are.

  • A doss!?

    Judging from these comments I must be really thick. I found the LPC very hard work and actually could have done with a lot more time for the compulsories. Thought the amount of time for the electives was ok. But then I'm clearly not the sharpest tool in the box!
