  • Surely, it is not a bad thing that there will be fewer LPC places? The legal market is flooded with LPC qualified graduates who cannot get a decent job due to oversupply. Students who have finished the LPC and who are drifting around doing various low paid paralegal jobs in hope of one day getting lucky (which is what I did for a year before securing a TC) and the general consensus among people in that situation is that the LPC providers churn out too many LPC graduates each year.

    Granted, the reduction in numbers would be better managed by increasing the entry requirements for the LPC, and there should be safeguards to ensure that not only the wealthy can become lawyers, but the reduction in numbers must nonetheless be welcomed.

  • I am quite sure it is seen as a 'bad thing' for those individuals who do have a TC and intended to study on this course who now have to make alternative arrangements which in addition to being significantly more expensive are much less convenient.

  • That may be so, but if they have secured a TC and have a guaranteed job at the end of the LPC I have limited sympathy.

  • I do agree, but what about those students with huge potential who will make fantastic solicitors but who cannot afford to go to another institution due to the traveling costs and extra tutition fees. This is yet another example of the legal industry being hard to crack for underrepresented students!
