    Hi all

    I have offers from University of Law, BPP and Birmingham City Uni to study the LPC LLM. I have a TC but they are not funding the LPC so I will have to self-fund take out a loan.

    Birmingham City's LPC is only £8000, so I could take out a loan to cover the full amount. I would rather go here for this reason, but I am worried that this will hurt my future career prospects, as the University is not as good as the other two. Does it matter where you go for the LPC?

    Cheers!

    My understanding is that firms have a preferred provider because they get a discount, if you’re self-funding I wouldn’t have thought the provider is so important. As for career prospects, as you already have a training contract your subsequent experience will be far more important than where you studied the LPC.

    As long as you can do optional/elective modules related to the type of law you will be working in, it really won't matter
