  • Either CoL have got their maths wrong, they are lying or they haven't taken into account all those who will be completing the LPC at BPP, Kaplan etc.

    Anyway, I can't see this causing major law firms too much concern.

  • I think in situations like these there is only one thing that can be said...
    LOL

  • I fear that they may not be factoring in the people who have passed their LPC but have yet to find a Training Contract.
    There were quite a large number of people who fit that description at BPP last year.....

  • Call me a cynic, but The College of Law would say that now, wouldn't they?

    If this actually is the case it will be a good opportunity for the back-log of LPC graduates to finally find a TC, so they wouldn't have wasted thousands of pounds on their LPC paid to institutions like the COL.

  • Now let's see the figures for the increase in LPC students for the next few years.

    Subliminal marketing at its best from this charity.

  • All this misinformation from the Law Soc is typical of a membership organisation/trade union that thinks by deterring young people from joining the profession will preserve jobs for the old lags.

  • The forecasts demonstrate the potential risks in actively discouraging the most able and committed students away from a career in law. Although there are over 15,000 validated places on the LPC per year there are substantially fewer successful LPC graduates. Based on statistics published by the Law Society and CAB, this summer there may be as few as 4,400 LPC graduates from all law schools in total, not just the College of Law.

  • An excess of training contracts next year? Yeah, and I understand Elvis is alive too......

  • I am currently studying the LPC at the CoL. In my class of 20 only myself and one other person has secured a training contract.

  • Hasn't Richard Moorhead at Cardiff been saying this for months? If the figures are from Law Soc, then must be all LPC providers taken into consideration, not just the CoL.

    Has anyone done a fact check on these figures, rather than just deliberating with opinion.
