UK College of Law admits students with poor grades

March 22, 2011 The director of business development at the College of Law i the UK, Sarah Hutchinson, has said that 68.4 per cent of students earned a first or upper second class degree at university. This admission means that around 32 per cent of students have a 2.2 or lower, and would not meet widely recognised minimum requirement for a training contract at the end of the course.

RollOnFriday points out that in 2008-09, 9,337 students enrolled in a legal practice course, of which around 7000 will graduate. And since there were just 5,809 traineeships registered in that year, it is likely that students with a 2:2 will have a tough time securing places.
