Lift for trainee barristers as HSBC reinstates BPTC loan
The same applies to those wishing to become solicitors.
Unless you are lucky enough to have funding as part of a training contract, you must take on a substantial amount of debt if you wish to become a solicitor. In the absence of Bank of Mum and Dad and/or trust fund assistance, you must take on considerable debt at University, take on considerable debt at the College of Law and then earn next to nothing for 2 years whilst undertaking your training contract, which for most, produces considerable debt.
This is about the long game and a challenging and rewarding career, both intellectually and financially.
Having said all of this, if I had to start by taking on £27k of debt just for University tuition fees, I would probably just become a plumber, which apparently pays very well.
