    I finished my law degree in 2010 (2:1), I am currently completing a PGCE which I should finish in June 2015.

    I would love to be a law lecturer within a University and thinking of either completing a masters in law or completing the LPC full time next year.

    On paper then I will have the minimum academic qualifications to teach within a University.

    Has anyone got any experience or advice on how I might achieve this, or is it a case of who you know?

    I am not sure of the exact requirements but most law lecturers I have met through my university contacts have significant post-grad qualifications and usually have worked in industry for a number of years before they became an academic. I don't think it is as straight forward as just having a MA or having completed the LPC.
