  • I would have to disagree with the dismissive way you mention studying in the regions. The major firms are no less likely to interview you, a place like Manchester has good transport links and if your LPC provider is good you will not miss out on the big firms.

    The reduction in the cost of rent is a big pull for the regions but so are the opportunities you can get on the LPC. Students in London have a much lower chance of achieving positions of responsibility such as student directorship of pro-bono projects, student representation etc because they are competing with huge number of students. These are things that all law firms are looking for in future trainees.

    There is also more contact with tutors and better access to all the staff members.

    Therefore I think more than a glancing statement of being further from the firms would be useful in weighing up the value to studying outside of London.

  • This is a very interesting proposal. Two questions occur to me. First, how would this impact, if at all, the issue of cost of legal education ? Second, while I see how it would produce graduates with more immediately useful skills, it is not clear whether it would address the issue of the excess supply of lawyers currently being produced by the law schools.
