  • Surplus

    When Ramsay Mc Donald was struggling with unemployment in the 1920s, he said " Our population exceeds our trade". Isn't it about time
    the Law Society stopped advertising for Solicitors on the back of buses and conceded that there are too many lawyers and that the chances of securing a training contract are remote. Taking money under false pretences springs to mind .

  • Agreed with 'Surplus'

    I couldn't agree more with the first comment - the numbers going into law were unsustainable even before the recession. More and more institutions are being granted the power to award the LLB and students are increasingly being outright lied to by their high schools and colleges about their prospects as a law student. Those students who really deserve the jobs will still find them. Those who were never really cut out for the job wont.
