What I wish I had known before doing my mini-pupillage
Irina M

I recently undertook a mini-pupillage with the Exchange Chambers in Manchester, which was new, untested territory for me. It was my first time visiting a UK crown court, my first time doing work experience in the criminal law field and my first time meeting a barrister. Now, I would like to highlight the key things that I wish I had known beforehand in order to help other students who feel that it is a daunting experience.

Are the GDL and LPC eligible for postgraduate loan funding?
Dear Oracle ...

I have graduated from my undergraduate degree and need to complete the GDL and LPC before I can start a training contract, but am really going to struggle to finance these hugely expensive courses. I have heard about postgraduate loans and am wondering if GDL and LPC students are eligible?
