  • So surprised to see this, OXILP is a great LPC provider and the staff there are very supportive in helping students pass-god help her with the pressures in real life practice.

  • I am currently having a really good experience at OXILP. I am a mature student and have found that compared to other educational and career experience, the teachers at OXILP to be particularly supportive. While the support is on offer to all students, studying involves a greater degree of personal responsibility, being one of those rare occasions in life where you are less reliant on teams and other parties for your success.

  • well all I can say is that she is not that daft then - has obviously been taught well enough to catch on to the great money spinner of suing anyone that so much as looks at you ! I think most law students find exams psychologically hard ! I know I certainly forfeighted alot of sleep and sanity but as in all aspects of life sheer dedication and determination won the day ! she needs counselling for sure but not the legal type.

  • Would be interesting to know the facts.

    Students do pay an awful lot for the LPC and should receive top quality tuition.

    The only LPC provider that should be sued for poor service is the College of Law.

    It's now just a factory just interested in making money.

    Though given the significant number of LPC students out of work, it was just a matter of time before this erupted.

  • This girl was at OXILP the year before me. She failed her Property Law exams, I sat those exact same exams and got 87% despite not having studied at Oxford and only having a 2:2 degree, maybe she should have revised a little bit harder and maybe she should try blaming herselg rather than her lecturers?

  • How is it that the majority of her year managed to pass and she did'nt? An oxford graduate at that! Looks like someone either didn't study enough. Maybe she got a little big headed... Alternatively, she mat gave peaked (academically that is) at university. Either way, the LPC is not THAT hard. For me it was the easiest year in my academic career. It looks like someone needs to look in the mirror, rather than point the figure.

  • This lady is now apparently a fully qualified lawyer in Russia on the strength of her Law Degree and some work in a solicitors' office. That says a lot about the lack of a proper legal profession in Russia.

    And I recall that thirty years ago I had exactly the same problem - I was an Oxford graduate with a History degree and I found the Law Society Finals very difficult but I just had to accept I had to play the examiners' game and give them exactly what they wanted. Oddly enough, that's what clients want too. They never want an academic answer however clever it is.
