I live in Hong Kong, but my law school is in London
In the latest instalment in our Career Conundrums series, one aspiring solicitor questions whether studying abroad, but at a UK university, will help or hinder her training contract pursuit.
I am currently studying the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) at BPP University in London as a distance learner in Hong Kong. I will be starting my Legal Practice Course (LPC) next year in September if things go well. I want to get a training contract in the UK, but I am worried. I am wondering whether my Asian background and having done distance learning will put me at a disadvantage.
