    Hi guys,

    I am due to begin the LPC in September but in light of the SRA recent recommendations, suggesting to change the route to qualification, I am wondering whether it is still a sensible option to pursue this route?
    I studied at a Russell Group University, obtained A*AA, was involved in extra-curricular activities and currently working as a paralegal so I believe I do stand good chances of obtaining a training contract while on the course. If not, then I want to move back to London, where the majority of the paralegal jobs require the LPC.

    If you are starting it this September, it is not an issue - any later and it might be. The SRA are currently suggesting the LPC won't be phased out until 2022 (there will be a transition period of 3 years where both qualification processes will run at the same time), and even then their timeframes are a little optimistic.

    It sounds like many firms are not going to rush into the SQE and will be quite willing to make a slow transition to the SQE once things are much clearer and tested out.
