Nothing screams ‘waste of money’ like spending £20,000 and two years on a qualification that isn’t really the equivalent of a masters degree with no prospect of a job thereafter. Reply Link Anonymous 17 February 2012 at 11:37 I must agree with the post above. There should also be increased input from firms to help law graduates complete the LPC without having to fork out thousands of pounds and still have no prospect of qualifying as a solicitor in the end. In particular, those candidates that already work in firms as assistants (after having a law degree and good exposure to commercial environments) should be given a shot to progress. Perhaps the Law Society can recognise these individuals and introduce a fast-track qualification? Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
