For law firms that pay their trainees LPC fees, do they usually require their trainees to sign an undertaking to repay training costs form? I know that the Government Legal Department do and I wanted to see whether this was common practice.

Normally law firms will have something in the training contract which says that if you leave within a certain amount of time you have to pay back the fees.

The way you've expressed this bit makes no sense.

The usual stipulation is that you have to repay your fees if you drop out at any point after they have confirmed your place on the LPC and before you have completed your training contract. So if you left half-way through the training contract, they'd ask for their money back. Some (cheap and awful) firms will require you to repay a fraction if you leave within X many years of qualification.

Obviously this still applies if you self-funded the LPC and had your fees reimbursed.
