  • I disagree, most people opt for the LPC as it is cheaper and everyone is fully aware of the intense competition at the bar. Becoming a Solicitor is generally more viable. I took my LPC whilst always fully intent on becoming a Higher-Rights Advocate.

  • Tobias, author's making point that someone will opt for BPTC if wishing to be an advocate "above all else." Solicitor-advocate is still first and foremost a solicitor, not a full-time advocate. Opting to train as solicitors just because competition is slightly lower than for the bar does not seem like the best reason. Do solicitor-advocates handle more or less advocacy than barristers? I'm sure it must be less or all barristers would be switching to get the steady salary, right?

  • There will always be the need for *advocates* but not *barristers.* A fused profession can work if lawyers who are good advocates simply spend most time in court than those who are better at other things.
