Oxford law graduate sues tutors for ruining her career. Maria Abramova, 28, is suing her tutors for £100,000 for not giving her enough tuition in exam technique which caused her to fail her professional exams. Ms Abramova graduated with a law degree from Oxford Universitys Oriel College in July 2004. She began the legal practice course (LPC) at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice (OXILP) in September the same year. OXILP is part of Oxford Brookes University. She is claiming that the staff at OXLIP failed to give her enough tutoring in exam technique and this caused her to fail her first lot of exams. It was only after she failed these that the staff began giving her some tutoring in this area. She passed all of her retake exams except for property law and practice which meant she left the course unable to qualify as a solicitor. Ms Abramova said she has found it psychologically difficult to take legal examinations following my experiences and that the tuition was clearly negligent. She believes the lack of training means she is ill equipped to deal with the examinations necessary for her to achieve in her chosen profession. She failed to pass the New York bar exam three years ago and has not qualified as a solicitor. Ms Abramova is currently working as a paralegal. OXLIP is denying any liability for Ms Abramovas inability to pass her professional exams. Ms Abramova, a talented linguist, came to the UK 11 years ago from Russia. She has achieved many academic awards, including the states silver medal for outstanding academic achievement. The hearing in the High Court in London continues.
