Are law firms continuing to use the LPC or the SQE in 2021? Also are training contracts scrapped or do law firms still use them?

Some are still continuing to use the LPC - indeed some have students on the PGDL this year 2021/22 with 2022/21 doing the LPC and will switch very shortly when it is compulsory.

Also even when they are using SQE the bigger firms hope to have students do their SQE1 and 2 courses, pass all exams and only then start the 2 years of training at the firm - see eg https://www.slaughterandmay.com/care...qualification/ ( and see the PDF on the link "CCP" which gives a good graphic. That is just one example of 6 city firms. Other firms may differ.
