LPC student numbers fall

LPC student numbers fall

The Law Society’s Gazette reports that the number of students enrolled on full-time legal practice courses (LPCs) has fallen this year by 8.4%.

The article suggests that the fall reflects awareness of the lack of training contracts on offer – although, with an increase in students enrolling part-time to spread the cost of fees, the factors could be as much a result of the increasing costs of continuing education.

The Gazette reports that in all, 5,198 students enrolled with the 27 LPC providers for 2013/2014 – 475 fewer than last year. This means that more than 6,500 course places theoretically approved by regulators are unfilled.
