From a distance of many years, it is perhaps difficult to remember how little one knew about the practice of law on graduation. However, as a solicitor who has supervised vacation students, one can see how little they would be capable of assisting the average litigant in person, who does not need intellectual prowess in the law, but practical understanding of the court system and procedure. New trainees are a little closer to being capable of offering some assistance, as a result of their professional training, but generally need about a year of dealing with clients to be ready to be let loose on representing anyone in court (and then only with supervision).
