  • What's the betting the law schools's research will conclude that training contracts should be abolished - allowing them to continue to increase LPC students at their own institutions and then call them solicitors on 'graduation'...

  • Ohh but I do believe that the training contract should be abolished. I agree that there should be some form of training for graduates but that it should not be fixed to a 2 year time period. BVC students get their barrister title when they graduate and so should LPC students. I guess I am speaking from the perspective of an international LPC Graduate who has spent thousands of pounds to undertake a LLB and LPC in the UK and is now being refused a work visa to obtain a training contract because of the present economy.

    I say review the requirements and put some kind of system in place to protect all of those graduates who are now in my curent position
