  • Actually, the real change that needs to be made to legal training is that GDL/LPC/ BPTC providers need to be stopped from providing far more places than their are training contracts/ pupillages out there. 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.

  • 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?
