  • 1) Yes it is bad, there is too much competition as it is on an increasingly sparse amount of training contracts and paralegal positions
    2) The LLB seems to have increasingly LESS value with legal employers especially as there are even some firms which friends and classmates have interveiwed at now openly stating they want GDL/CPE students and if you dare to do the LLB you must defend your decision to the hilt.
    3) The reason of increased competition was "cited" as it was the only reason available next to the 'No' option with no comment section to say the other multitude of reasons against it.
    4) This will always be a bad thing until either (or ideally both) the publicisation of the BSc Law - which does not qualify dor ther LawSoceity/BarCouncil requirements and/or a restriction on LPC/BPTC places which will reduce the bottleneck on training contracts.
    5) Any stats available at which Universities are seeing these increased applications? Are we facing yet more red-brick and Russell Group snobbery in the next wave of applicants for training contracts?
