    Hey

    Was just curious but is it possible to pursue a (LPC)legal practice course after a law degree if you have been given a caution by the police 3years before pursuing the course?

    but im sure when you register with the solicitors regulation authority you need to write down if any criminal convictions, cautions or warnings? would a caution for theft or something affect your chances? - which was around 3years ago

    You might need to get additional references testifying your suitability to be a solicitor and will have an earlier deadline for sending off your application, but you should be fine. Go to the SRA's website for more info

    Go to the SRA's web-site and enrol as a student member ASAP. This is something distinct from getting a place on the LPC - the SRA is the regulatory body.

    Don't know about the LPC stuff I'm afraid. If in doubt, ring up and ask.

    Okay thanks I will enrol now. But in the LPC form - it just stated if i had any county court judgements or criminal convictions. Nothing mentioned about cautions.

    As JP has explained, enrolling with a college for the LPC is different to becoming a student member of the SRA. The former is simply getting a place on an academic course, the latter is a matter of becoming a member of a professional association.

    You need to take a good look at this website NOW and the deadlines it refers to:

    http://www.sra.org.uk/students/student-enrolment.page

    In particular, you should note the text which requires you to declare any criminal convictions including cautions. I don't know whether you're applying through the Central Applications Board but, if you are, then your deadline was 1 April.

    In relation to suitability issues etc, this doc will help:
