    Hey all.


    I am a recent LLB Law Graduate from University of Portsmouth achieving a high 2:1 overall.

    I recently got a job at my local council in the legal team as a Legal Assistant/Paralegal in the litigation team, and began in late July. I originally decided against doing the LPC until I obtained a training contract or had enough experience in being confident in being able to obtain a TC. However I did apply to the University of Law Scholarship scheme just for good measure. Incredibly I had been offered a £10,000 scholarship in Mid August to study the LPC, and without hesitation accepted this offer.

    I subsequently informed my work place, where I feared I would most likely lose my job as it was full time and the LPC would take up at least two days a week (I wanted to do full time LPC not part time weekends), surprisingly the Council told me that this was a frequent request made by staff and they would allow me to take the LPC for two days and the remaining 3 days I would be working. I would also be working full time during term holidays.

    I will be undertaking my LPC at The University of Law in Guildford.

    I am now just over 2 weeks from starting my LPC and have a few questions that are hanging over my head:

    1. Will I be able to handle the work load doing a 2 day a week LPC and a legal job 3 days a week?

    2. Is it worth doing the LPC considering I have no training contract? (Scholarship offer is only valid for this year)

    3. How good are the UoL in aiding people to secure TC's?


    Thanks for the help
