  • Your comment piece asks the College to disclose the final destinations of our LPC graduates. We have made this information public before and are very happy to do so again here. The latest available statistics are from the cohort of students who passed the LPC in 2009. Of those whose destinations we know, 93% were in permanent employment, 88% were employed in the legal profession and nearly 70% had a training contract.
    These figures reflect the College’s emphasis on boosting students’ employability and developing their professional knowledge and skills, which are much sought after in both the legal industry and in other business areas.

  • Nearly 70% of CoL graduates find a training contract within 2 years of leaving the LPC?

    I am sorry Nigel, I have kept in contact with most of my group from the LPC and would say that, at best, 50% of us have training contracts (probably less).

  • Mr Savage,

    Could you please clarify what you mean by "of those whose destinations we know". Does this include those on courses who already have training contracts? i.e. courses you run for particular firms. How many responded to your survey out of the total number of students who passed the LPC in 2009 at CoL?

  • Unfortunately not all LPC providers are able to give figures of the destinations of their diplomates after their courses. We provide statistics showing destinations of our diplomates every year up to 3 years after their course - anyone is welcome to them.

  • I would suggest that Nigel's statistics probably automatically include all the firm-specific LPC grads as well as the non-firm-specific people who answered the relevant survey. So in reality the figure with TCs is likely to be a fair bit less than 70%.
