I received an email a while back from ‘Young Lawyer’ about the LPC course run by BPP. I didn’t think much of it at the time.
But having cleared out my inbox recently (I go through phases when I’ll delete 1000 or so emails en masse), I came across it again, and this time it grated on me a bit.
Seriously... spam for the LPC – what’s the world coming to?
In fact, it reminded me an awful lot of the time when I bought an iron from Amazon. A few days after it had arrived, I received an email from Amazon with a product list of their 20 top selling irons.
I’d just bought the frickin’ thing – what did they think I wanted? TWO irons? One for each hand?
But this isn’t their only LPC-themed mass mailing. I also stumbled across a “write an essay for their competition and win a place on the LPC” email from 2010.
OK, never mind the fact there was a second email, the LPC is the PRIZE?
I’ve always thought of the LPC as more a punishment than a prize. Don’t tell me writing the essay was the treat?
