This post was written by: Aston Bond Law Firm

The number of students enrolled on full-tine legal practice courses has dropped by over 8% this year, highlighting a significant drop in the number of training contracts on offer to students.

In a recent article published by The Law Society Gazette it was revealed that only 5,198 students enrolled with the 27 LPC providers for 2013 and 2014; seeing a decline of 475 from the previous year.

Furthermore, according to The Law Society Gazette courses are only 44% full on average, highlighting the 37.5% decline in LPC student applications since 2008 and 2009.

While fewer training contracts are being provided Aston Bond is proud to lead the way in introducing the next-generation to the legal sector and we are currently accepting applications for a trainee solicitor and conveyancing assistant.
