The College of Law (CoL) is warning the profession that training contract vacancies are expected to exceed the number of students completing the Legal Practice Course (LPC).

According to the CoL a shortfall could arise as early as this year and may jump considerably in 2011-12, meaning there are 14 per cent more available training contracts than students passing the LPC in that year, a graduate shortfall of around 550.

It is in stark contrast with statistics published by the Law Society last week, which revealed that despite 14,510 LPC places being available to law students across two modes of study in 2009-10, only 4,874 training contracts were registered between 1 August 2009 to 31 July 2010.
