    Look out for networking events on Eventbrite and on LinkedIn. You will just need to be more proactive in going to these career events run by firms. A lot of other students are fortunate to have them run on their doorstep and around their lectures.

    You are also fortunate to have a lot of time to gather this experience and knowledge where your course is part-time.

    If you happen to know about any open day/first year programmes etc. please do let me know. I'm not sure where I'm supposed to find out about these.

    By no means an extensive list - but a good starting point:

    I do have another question: do I have to get a trainee contract first and then start the LPC or start the LPC and then get a trainee contract? How does that work? And is there any chance that my employer will pay for the LPC?

    You can do the LPC without the TC and I think the majority of people do. However, in my opinion it is preferable (if possible) to get the TC first and then do the LPC. Some firms will pay for the LPC (and give you some money for living expenses during the LPC year). Chambers Student/Lex100 would be good resources to find out more about the funding situation if you have your eye on any firms/areas.

    Thanks. Will have a look at that.

    I just dislike snobbery and elitism. Whether its the office boy, doorman or secretary I respect everyone I work with for what they can do and what they contribute.
    A very good attitude although we don't call them office boys any more.
