Kirkland & Ellis boosts LPC grant to £10,000

US heavyweight Kirkland & Ellis has upped its Legal Practice Course (LPC) maintenance grant to £10,000 for incoming London-based trainees.

From July 2018, new joiners to the firm will benefit from an additional £2,000 to their maintenance account – a 25% increase from the £8,000 trainees from previous cohorts were given to cover living expenses.

Those receiving the increased sum will have to complete an accelerated version of the LPC at The University of Law and conclude the course in seven months.

Kirkland & Ellis now joins large firms including Allen & Overy, Hogan Lovells and Slaughter and May who similarly boosted their LPC grant to five figures earlier this year.
