Student finance: some advice
Tuition fees and debt – going to university or law school is hugely expensive and that’s no joke for the vast majority of people, whose families simply cannot afford the prohibitive cost of funding their studies. But even with tuition fees at an eye-watering £9,000 a year, the benefits of higher qualifications are still worth it in our view, while the system for repaying student loans remains more like an affordable tax than a traditional loan. The enrichment of education and the chance for a fulfilling, rewarding, well-paid job in a field of your choosing remains a long-term goal worth striving for. To that end, this week’s Feature looks at the funding options out there, from student and bank loans to government income support and college grants, and even Inns of Court scholarships.
What is LC.N Weekly?
LC.N Weekly is our free weekly newsletter designed to keep you up-to-date with all the issues relating to finding a career in the legal profession. Each week we analyse firms, write features, seek out the most important legal news stories and much, much more - all sent straight to your inbox. Over 50,000 already receive the newsletter; why not join them?
Each week you will receive:
News: We provide an ongoing news service for you, highlighting key stories from the legal press and elsewhere. The emphasis is, of course, on training and recruitment issues, but we cover all the big law stories too.
Meet the Recruiter: Every fortnight we delve into the mind of a recruiter to find out what they do, what makes them tick and what they are looking for in a candidate. And of course we get them to answer the all-important favourite biscuit question!
Burning Question: All law firms want their lawyers and their trainees to have commercial awareness. This means that you need to know what's going on in the business world. Each week we pose a burning question and ask a real lawyer or trainee to write a short answer.
The Oracle: We often receive requests for help and advice from future trainees and pupils. We've now formalised this process in a 'problem page' format. The Oracle will help you solve all those tricky problems relating to the recruitment process. Letters of particular interest, or letters that serve to illustrate common issues, are published in the newsletters and on the site. Whether published or not, every letter that we receive gets an answer.
Features: Every fortnight we publish a new feature article designed to increase your knowledge of the recruitment process or the legal profession as a whole. Some are produced in-house, others by experts from firms, chambers, universities and bodies within the legal community.
LC.N Diary: Many firms are travelling the country to meet candidates and raise their own profiles. By consulting our diary you'll know what events are happening near you (ie, who will be there, and when and where the events take place).
