There’s no closing date for applications; rather, they’re dealt with as they’re submitted and institutions are notified weekly of new submissions.

It's unclear when education providers will stop offering the LPC but you must meet the SRA’s transitional arrangements to be eligible for a place on an LPC course. Otherwise, you must qualify via the SQE.

Applications for almost all institutions that offer the LPC course are managed by the Central Applications Board – apply online or email [email protected] with further enquiries.

If you have any questions about the character check or anything to do with the new regulations, contact the SRA directly ([email protected], www.sra.org.uk/contact-us or 0370 606 2555).
