LawSoc warns students of pitfalls on path to legal profession
The Law Society is launching a campaign to encourage students to consider the risks involved before pursuing a career in law. The campaign will highlight the increased competition prospective solicitors face as they bid to get a foothold in the profession. It will also include information about the substantial costs of legal training. During 2008 7,606 students successfully passed the LPC while just 6,303 new training contracts were registered, meaning that more than 1,000 LPC graduates failed to secure a contract.
