I am hoping to do Law at Uni commencing academic year 2004/2005.

Whilst this may seem an age away for some I have A-Level exams in January (9 - 11 weeks away) so academia is very much at the forefront of my mind.

I understand that as early as the second year at University people who intend to go on to legal practice are asked to enter for either LPC or BAR courses depending on if they wish to persue a career as a solicitor or a Barrister. I understand that this is career choice is NOT final and it is possible to "multiskill". Infact I have heard that many Barristers end up retrianing as solicitors as the work is considered more "sociable".

I apreciate the difference between a Solicitor and a Barrister however I understand that BAR is generally regarded as the "higher" qualification and is thus probably more difficult.

Has anyone on here done either the LPC or BAR and if so how did you find it?

And yes...I know that if I went to work at Starbucks I could be a BARISTA whilst training to be a Solicitor .
