    Hello all,

    I'm about to complete my LLB at Lancaster Uni and I am planning on doing an LPC at Uni of Law in Manchester. As I have not really got any work experience, I have been thinking about doing it part time whilst getting a full time job. However, I have recently realised this may make it difficult for me as I won't have much time do focus on my LPC, especially if I'm in a standard Mon-Fri 9-5 job.

    I have now been also considering taking a year off, working and then doing the LPC full time, as I will have the option of living at home with my parents.

    I don't think it would be best to do the LPC full time straight away because I'm not exactly going to be very employable with an empty work experience section on my CV.

    What do current LPC students or graduates think? Is it doable on a full time job, or should I take a year out? I could always work part time, but I think I want a full time job.

    Many thanks.
