  • I would suggest that the Law Society bans entrants from other professions from studying law. This measure would to a very large extent ,reduce the number of applicants for the LPC.

  • Sounds like another barrier to the profession. The ability to pass an exam is not an indicator as to how somebody will relate with their colleagues or clients.So much for diversity...

    Why not scrap the TC, like most other common law jurisdictions.

  • There needs to be a complete review of post graduate legal education to reduce the cost, break the stranglehold of the LPC providers and make it more commercially relevant eg much more tax.
    The chartered accountancy bodies regularly review their syllabus and structure of their exams to keep it relevant. Many years ago tax work was dominated by lawyers, now the accountants hold sway.
    Also the Law Society should be promoting the services that solicitors provide much more, to increase work flow and hence employment.

  • I agree with the above post that the LPC should only be taken if one secures a TC. I am still searching for a TC after obtaining commendation and 2.1 LLB. It has nothing to do with ability to secure one but pure and simple luck and networking…who knows who. I made my mistake in going down that route and am still suffering from the many disappointments, maybe they can save others the heartache and expenses!!
