Part-time or full-time?

Is it better to study the LPC part-time over so I can work at the same time or just finish it in one year?                                                               

I am applying for LPC starting 2011 (7 year time limit means I can no longer delay) and simultaneously applying for training contracts starting 2013. If I am awarded a training contract with funding, would they be likely to pay for my LPC in 2011 given that applicants for the 2013 intake would normally be studying in 2012? As I have the option of studying part-time over two years, would it be better to study part time and try and find an accommodating employer who will employ a graduate for 2/3 days a week for two years, or finish full-time in one year then seek work as an LPC-armed paralegal for the second year?
