    Hi, I'm a 2014 law graduate unfortunately with a 2.2 from a RG uni . I've been a Legal Assistant in Family Law for a brief period and now work as a paralegal in PI dealing with my own caseload from start to finish.

    Would it be sensible to self - fund the LPC at this stage or would it be better to carry on getting experience ? It is an awful lot of money but I've been saving for a year so funding is not a problem.

    However , I'm not 100 % set on Law because it's so competitive. I had previously tried getting into accountancy / tax but I'm not good at numerical tests. I'm just scared of getting to the age of 30 and still being a paralegal.

    Better to carry on getting experience to what end?

    Paralegal, get training contract with that firm then do LPC part time?

    Harder to get a TC if you have a 2.2but I would have thought you were well placed to do so

    Or Cilex?

    Hard to say if you don't know if you want to be a lawyer though.

    Can't you get a TC where you are? iP is good experience
