    The "Graduate Fast Track" course of study provided by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) offers those people with a qualifying law degree a very viable alternative route to qualification as a lawyer - please see the link below:

    http://www.cilex.org.uk/study/lawyer_qualifications/graduate_fast_track_diploma.aspx

    More interestingly for those people who have undertaken the LPC/BVC/BPTC course, they would be exempt from these academic requirements and would only need to complete the requisite period of qualifying employment before being able to apply for Fellowship of CILEx (and so become a Chartered Legal Executive).

  • Thanks Chris

  • I think capping LPC places would be hard as you'd have to ask 'which provider gets XYZ'.

    Instead, the Law Society/SRA could consider that it alone can recruit LPC students and then cap them. Then these students can choose which provider to go to e.g they get some cert that allows them to apply to a provider. This will then turn things around on the provider and even reduce fees?

    I really do feel bad about those completing the LPC (and to a good level) only to find out they can't get a TC.

    The status quo cannot continue- authorities need to step in!
