Legal training system failing law students


Heads up for a very interesting article by Neil Rose at The Guardian Law which says that “While the number of places on the LPC has exploded over the last decade, increasing by nearly 70%, there has been only a 20% rise (to 5,809) in the number of training contracts for them to go on, a figure that is falling in the recession.” Cartoon by Alex Williams.

This is exactly why I had to go down the ILEX route after my law degree not ideal as I am paid less than all my friends that undertook the LPC. I couldnt really afford the LPC and wasnt about to take on a loan when I couldnt get a training contract. I was a young single mum at the time who had career goals and wanted to help herself!!
