    • Further information on the study of law:

      Professional regulators in the legal sector are currently conducting an extensive consultation about legal education and training. This includes review about the routes and qualifications to become a solicitor or barrister. Some of the considerations include changing or ending existing routes, or opening new ones. The current routes of a qualifying law degree or the GDL, and the BPTC to become a barrister will remain in place until summer 2017. The current route of a qualifying law degree or GDL and LPC will remain in place until summer 2018

      The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board will make announcements after their consultations and reviews during 2016. These decisions will then inform the different routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister.
