  • 2 years at college A-levels.
    3 years at uni-law degree
    then one year doing the lpc.
    if u decide to do a non law course at univeristy its still 3 years
    but you have to do the GDL course for a year and then the LPC course=2 extra years

  • Also check out other options in getting a legal career, such as a legal executive, as a fellow of the institute of legal executives.

  • How did you go about securing your training contract? And when you mention extra curricular activities, what in particular would you suggest? Besides Mooting and Debating, would taking up sports help enchance your chances at securing a place at a Law firm?

  • I spent £13,852.13 on my daughters full time LPC at the College of Law Guildford 2 years ago and there is no hope whatsoever of her getting a training contract despite applying. I admonish the Law Society for continuing to "plug" the LPC and BVC with "nowhere to go" for these potential solicitors and the investment made in their future - the College of Law takes their graduates out of their intranet after 6-months so no hope of seeing what else is on offer.

    The Law Society need to think long and hard to see what they can to assist trainess-in-waiting who have deferments and probably more deferments and those like my daughter who are well qualified in real practice to get a training contract.

  • I have heard that you can become a solicitor the legal executive route does this mean you still have to do the LPC ?
