  • The SRA spokesperson evidently doesn't know the correct usage of the word "presently". I don't think that he or she would pass the admissions test.

  • Mr Savage should realise that the days of "Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all" flocking to law school with their cheque books are over. He should be preparing for the tiny number of candidates who will want to become solicitors in future.

  • Remember the SRA also gets a slice from students so it is in the interests of the SRA to keep student number high.
    Hopefully tuition fees at £9,000 per annum will stop this ridiculous behaviour of flocking to the LPC.
    Surely students will not self-fund the LPC after incurring this amount of debt!!
