Career Clinic: Should I convert my LPC to an LLM?
I am a current Legal Practice Course (LPC) student at a major law school. The school has recently been given degree-awarding status and I am told I can convert my LPC into an LLM in Legal Practice if I do a dissertation over the summer holiday and pay an additional £3,500 for the pleasure. The firm with which I have a training contract will not pay for this. Would an LLM be an advantage to me if i choose to change firms or leaving the profession after my training contract? Or is this just a waste of money - and my last summer holiday?
