"I am a recent graduate in law (good 2:1) from a top 20 UK institution. I have also done a year abroad on my degree and I am about to take a second year abroad, whilst gaining non-law work experience.

"However, I am a BBB student at A-level and there are some not-so-good results on my degree. Having not secured a training contract thus far, I was wondering whether I should self-fund my Legal Practice Course (LPC)?

"LPC suppliers are all to happy to take my money, but is it worth taking the chance? I am committed to the legal profession, but I have to be pragmatic and realistic about my chances. Any comments welcome..."
