The Legal Cheek View
London Metropolitan University is centrally positioned in Moorgate, amid the City’s skyscrapers. You can’t argue with its LPC fees, which are very reasonable for a London university. The value for money is just as good, according to one former student: “I thoroughly enjoyed the time that I spent at London Met, and upon entering my training contract I felt totally prepared and able to take on the role of a trainee solicitor”.
Many LPC students who plan to be future City stars fork out thousands for a place at London providers with close ties with corporate law firms. At £9,900, doing the LPC at London Met will keep your bank account healthier.
Despite the lower fees, LPC students are still in close proximity to all the major City law firms. This is convenient when you get to application season, and you’re going from firm to firm for open days, interviews and assessment centres. LPCers at the Met are also well placed to attend networking events around the capital.
