    Hi, I know this is a rather silly question, but I cannot seem to find the answer anywhere: how soon after completing their LLB degree does one have to commence the LPC? Is there any time limit at all? I have heard there was one, but cannot find a confirmation of this on any reliable website.

    Assuming there is a time limit, if one finishes their LLB course and goes into doing something else, and then, after the limit has expired, one decides they want to become a lawyer, what does one have to do? GDL as they still have a degree, just not a 'qualifying' one?

    Many thanks in advance.
