LAW
Asked by Emma

What qualifications are needed to become a lawyer?

To become a lawyer through the traditional route, you'll first need to complete a qualifying law degree (LLB) at university, or study another subject at undergraduate level then take the one-year GDL Conversion course. At this point the pathways for aspiring solicitors and barristers diverge. If you want to be a solicitor you must complete the vocational Legal Practice Course (LPC) before undertaking a training contract with a law firm - as part of which you'll have to pass a Professional Skills Course. You can then apply for admission to the roll of solicitors.
