For the LPC they tend to admit from 2:2 and above, while it is not impossible to be accepted with a 3rd i can't see you being accepted for the LPC without extenuating circumstances say for instances you were sick during your LLB or had a mental break down.

For those who don't have extenuating circumstances the advice I've heard people who achieved a 3rd for their LLB has been to pursue another line of work from what they have told me.

To be clear that's not my advice but I would ask you to think long and hard about if you actually want to pursue a career in law. If you couldn't muster up the enthusiasm for the subject to achieve at least a 2:2 while doing your undergraduate maybe you're not cut out to be a solicitor... i'm not saying that you're not cut out for it I'm just suggesting that you think long and hard about why you want a career in law.

The above paragraph need not apply if you have convincing extenuating circumstances.

Hi, I have an LL.B from the University of London external program and an LL.M from University of Sussex. I want to practice family law in the Uk and I need advice on whether I should do an LPC (which is quite expensive) or can I make do with a graduate diploma in legal practice? I will be grateful for any help or advice!

The LPC is compulsory to be admitted as a solicitor just like the BPTC is compulsory to be admitted as a barister.
