  • It is not fair at all.

    I am lucky enough to have secured a training contract. Though, I emerged from the LPC without a training contract. Getting paralegal experience was crucial for me to get across to a recruiter - 'Disregard my A-Level grades which were obtained nearly a decade ago. I am damn good and I am good enough to be a trainee; just look at my paralegal experience'. Without paralegalling I would not have secured a training contract.

    Maybe candidates need to bypass recruitment agencies and try to get their CVs straight to HR of law firms.
