The Numbers

  • In the 2012/2013 academic year 6171 students completed their Legal Practice Course (LPC).
  • Working on this year’s figures, this leaves a deficit of 657 legally qualified individuals with no training contract.
  • Every year hundreds of LPC graduates join the search for training contacts. These join the hundreds, if not thousands that are still looking for training contracts from previous years.
