LPC aptitude test report published

28 February 2011

Due to the current lack of universal entry requirements for the LPC, many students are expending large amounts of money with no way of judging whether they will have a chance of succeeding in passing the course.

With huge competition for training contracts, it is increasingly common for LPC graduates to find they are unable to secure a position and so do not go on to complete the qualification process.

In light of these issues, the Law Society commissioned research to investigate the viability of introducing an aptitude test for entry on the Legal Practice Course and has now published the report by Helen Baron.

In light of the current review of education and training by the legal regulators, the Law Society will not be pursuing the introduction of aptitude testing, however we welcome the report as a contribution to the debate and will be feeding it into the review process.
