To become a lawyer(solicitor for me) i will need to get my qualifying law degree and then do the legal practice course.
This route inevitably costs loads of money and I was wondering how I could fund this career path. If someone has any suggestions for funding would greatly appreciate.

Thank You

Most people in the UK would fund it via normal student loans, same as any other degree and then get an employer to sponsor for the LPC/SQE or take another loan for that.

Are you a UK citizen or someone with ILR who will have lived in the EU/UK for the 3 years prior to Sept 1 in the year your course starts?
There are also some degree apprenticeships where the firm pays.

1. In most cases no.
2. It is the period after degree and LPC currently or the period after formal education where you are employed as a trainee in a firm.
