I graduate from Newcastle in July with a First in Law and i currently work in a firm as a legal secretary. I am trying to figure out how to do my LPC. I have applied for 1 Training Contract with Irwin Mitchell before Christmas, but didn't get past the first stage as i did it in a rush. I have 1 or 2 other firms in mine, but my main problem is i am unsure of what area i want to go into, and therefore finding a TC is hard. I know i definitely want to do a seat in Public and Administration law, hence the Irwin Mitchell application.

I have been looking into starting the LPC with LLM to get the government funding in September, and doing it part-time with part-time work to support myself. unfortunately i come from a very low household income house and therefore don't have family money to help fund the LPC.

I feel i am panicking as i will have to wait another year to make applications at the firms i am interested in, and i am getting into my 20s with little direction in life.

Should i consider the LPC LLM part-time and fund myself, or keep applying for TCs in the hope that I secure one?

Any advice would be helpful.
