The Law Society has today announced a u-turn on its controversial plans to abolish the compulsory Legal Practice Course (LPC).
Under the proposals now being considered by the Training Framework Review Group students will be required to complete the LPC but could be given an exemption from parts of it because of their prior qualifications.
