Student sues LPC provider for failing to prepare her for exams

February 8, 2011 A former student is suing the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice, where she studied for the Legal Practice Course, after she failed the exam.

Maria Abramova, a paralegal at Gates & Partners, graduated from Oxford University in 2004 before starting the Legal Practice Certificate at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice. She failed the exam in 2005 because, she claims, she was not given enough instruction in exam technique.

When she attempted the New York bar exam she "found it psychologically difficult to take legal examinations following [her] OXILP", and failed the exam. She has now sued the Institute for £100,000, claiming that they were "clearly negligent" in failing to teach her how to sit an exam and "inadequate" in preparing her for the retakes.
