Paralegal roles - just LLB or also LPC?
Just to add a real-worl illustration to Samuel's post above - one of my friends has just finished her LLB with a First Class classification from Cardiff Uni (very respected) and still has not secured any form of paralegal or similar work. Plus the majority of adverts for paralegals want either experience or the LPC (or both!). As you only want paralegal work to fund your LPC and use the experience to get a TC, its quite unlikely employers will want to take you on anyway as they want paralegals who will stay with their firm rather than leave as soon as they have either the c£5,000-10,000 fees or will be constantly looking for a TC. As cost is an issue to you but you seem prepared to work for your profession, your best option would probably be the CILEX route as outlined by Noel above.
