LibraryThere has been a lot of concern among law firms – your potential employers – that the legal education system produces students who have too general a level of knowledge. This is particularly so in the case of large commercial firms, which, under strong competitive pressures, need their trainees to have a basic grounding in business issues and contract law, as well as a more specialist knowledge base than they have had in the past.

So what can you do about this state of affairs? Are you a powerless cog in the education machine, who gets blamed at the end of it for its faults? Well, there are things you can be aware of while still on your degree course. And you can take heart that moves have already been made to improve the Legal Practice Course (LPC).
