Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I have just started the LPC . After completing my law degree I had a substantial break in between where I have been working in a law firm. I'm only a few weeks in and am finding the work load immense and am worried that perhaps the break from studying I have had will hinder my ability to pass the course. At the moment it is causing me immense stress and anxiety. From speaking to others who have completed the course they have said it is very intensive but before I started the course people I worked with who had completed the LPC previous said that I should find it easier than those who are starting the course straight from university as I have practical experience. At the moment it does not feel that way and with assessments not too far away I am worried I am completely going to mess it up! I am working everyday on the days that I am not in university to do all of the pre-reading.

    Hi there, I started a few weeks ago and felt the same. However, when you do your reading for an SGS there will be guidance referring you to the reading that is required and recommended. So don't panic too much, at the end of the day it's a course for practical application of your law degree not a rehashing of it.
