LPC shake-up sees course split into two phases
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has confirmed it is to split the Legal Practice Course (LPC) into two phases, with students able to undertake a series of vocational electives alongside their training contract. Under the changes, the first stage of the LPC will cover core practice areas, professional responsibilities, conduct and course skills, while the second stage will see students opt for three vocational electives. The electives, which will be directly linked to the area in which the student is working, can be run alongside their training contracts, allowing them to spread the costs of study.
