I worked in a City firm for a few years post qualification. I moved out to Australia, on the back of my UK experience, and got a role with an international firm. I worked there for a few years and then moved in-house.
I don't think it will make much difference to your application whether you do Northumbria + CoL, or 4yr Northumbria. It's the quality of the undergrad degree, and results, which makes the difference, not the place of study for the LPC.
How do you get involved with Law in Australia??
What would be the best route to practice in Aus?
I'm currently in my second year of the MLaw (Exempting) Degree at Northumbria University. This degree comprises the LLB and LPC in a 4 year course, and has been spoken of highly by some academics/legal magazines etc...
I've noticed firms have begun to form partnerships with law schools - mainly BPP and College of Law.
I still have the option of studying a 3 year LLB at Northumbria and could apply to study the LPC at the College of Law or BPP law school.
From a recruiters perspective, via which route would I be better presented as an applicant?
Also - I must decided whether to study the 3 year LLB or 4 year exempting degree in March so if (IF) I secure a training contract in this cycle, by offer stage I will have already made my decision re LPC...!
Whilst I appreciate the 'up and coming' course that Northumbria offers, I honestly fear that the LPC at eg College of Law is simply better and more focused...
