  • This, in my opinion, is the saddest part of british legal education. Why do the bodies such as SRA and BSB do not take counter meassures against this monopolistic position? What is the justification for the increase of tuition fees that are not related to governmental funding? It saddens me to see that the Bar, which I think is a very inspirational and desirable place to work, is being downgraded simply by allowing a defacto monopoly of legal education. How the hell am I supposed to pay back the loan that I will most likely have to get from a bank with the prospect of not even getting a pupilage (and even if you get a pupilage you are by no means out of trouble). There is something fundamentally wrong with the way that legal education in England and Wales is carried out because it is a moneymaker for a few people that otherwise would not have any relationship to the Bar whatsoever. The legal profession should force the provider to donate 1/3 of the tuition fees towards the scholarship funds of the Inns/SRA to support the development of the bar.
