Burges Salmon sets up job site for Halliwells trainees
Alex Foley.......Allowing everyone to become a qualified lawyer once they have finished the LPC will NOT solve any problem. All that will result is hundreds of qualified lawyers with no jobs to go to.
It will also worsen the inequality, as those from rich backgrounds will qualify as lawyers automatically once they have paid the LPC fees.
LPC providers currently enrol ANYONE that has a degree. Your idea would make a joke of the law and allow anyone and everyone to become lawyers. Law is a tough and demanding profession, it should be a challenge to secure a training contract.
A better solution would be for LPC providers to act more stringently on their entry criteria and for students to take more responsibility for the risk that they take on when deciding to do the LPC.
Also, the JLD and the Law Society SHOULD be helping the Halliwells trainees. They place heavy restrictions on students but offer little support.
