Scotsman: Funding fears fuel wider examination of law courses

Today’s Scotsman legal section’s lead article discusses the  issues around the route to qualification as a lawyer and features the CFALP campaign.  The article includes quotes from Tim Haddow, a member of the CFALP steering group.

Describing the CFALP campaign, the article says:

As this new academic year comes round the discontent level among graduates considering enrolling on the DPLP courses appears significantly angrier and more organised than on previous occasions.

It may not quite be the Arab Spring but social media such as Twitter, Facebook and blogging sites have allowed a common front to develop in a way that was not possible for earlier generations when the chances were slim of the student leaders within Scotland’s law schools making regular productive contact with one another.

The article does include a minor technical inaccuracy (confusion of the PCDL and PTFL funding schemes – unless corrected in the online version) but gives a good overall view of some of the issues.  Please read the full article here on the Scotsman.com website.
