  • "Some have EVEN managed to get training contracts". This is where the problem comes: all these hopes, all this investment in time, efforts and money, and then the majority just floats from year to year, completing an endless number of TC applications while being exploited as a paralegal and hating every moment of it. It seems to me that the breakthrough these aspiring lawyers are hoping for is similar to the situation of an aspiring actor hoping to be noticed by the Big Producer while earning pennies as an extra.

    Why aren't these youngsters advised to study something more practical, and if indeed their desire for law persists, to first obtain a training contract and then go onto the GDL/LPC route. I think that this makes much more sense.

  • “It’s difficult to explain to Year 12 students what lawyers actually do - it’s all a bit abstract,”
    i.e. he does nothing worth talking about.

  • Did anyone actually tell the truth about the legal profession?
    Were there any unemployed LPC students present to give a balanced view?
    I guess not. College of Law needs to keep the money coming in I suppose.
