Guidance for LPC students and providers on meeting enrolment deadlines
SRA Update Issue 24 – May 2012
Legal Practice Course students can now register using the SRA's online enrolment system which opened on 16 April 2012 and will be available up to 1 September 2012 inclusive atwww.sra.org.uk/enrol.
Applicants missing the deadline will have to use a paper-based method.
Enrolling online is designed to be quicker and simpler. After 1 September students will need to download the student enrolment application and submit it as a paper form by post, together with the appropriate fee and any supporting documents.
All potential Legal Practice Course (LPC) students should make sure they meet our enrolment deadlines.
Student enrolment is the process by which potential LPC students
- show they have satisfied the academic stage requirements and are therefore eligible and sufficiently qualified to continue to the vocational stage of training,
- show by passing the Suitability Test that they are of the appropriate character to continue to the next stage of training on the route to becoming a solicitor, and
- bring them within the regulatory regime of the SRA.
The SRA Training Regulations 2011 state that LPC applicants must have enrolled with us before they begin the LPC. It is very important that students apply enrol in advance of their anticipated LPC start date to allow time for their applications to be processed.
