  • I can't believe they are considering abolishing the law degree!! what does that mean to all those who have done the three year stint - will it just be a defunct degree then?

  • They may take our law degrees, but they'll never take our liberties!

  • They are not considering abolishing law degrees, they are considering abolishing qualifying law degrees.

    Lets be honest - over 50% of people on the LPC are not going to make it. A natoinal assessment centre at the entry point to the profession is an excellent idea - weed out people who have no realistic prospect of qualifying as a solicitor early on, before they have spent several years and tens of thousands of pounds on their dream.

    We need to become more like medicine. The amount of people training for the profession should roughly equate to the amount of jobs available.

  • The law degree has always been defunct. Why bother with three years of terrible rote learning tedium when you can just breeze through the GDL? Hiring firms certainly don't care...

  • The Australian system is worth considering. Their undergraduate law degrees have both an academic and practical emphasis. Take a peek at the University of Sydney LLB syllabus.

    I agree we need to become like medicine but with other sensible pathways. As for the GDL please don't get me started on that!

    You wouldn't get away with that in the US!
