  • This is further evidence that the car boot sale approach to legal education simply doesn't work.

  • The homepage of BPP law school says to prospective students "You will have a party at the beginning of term". Not if BPP don't open the doors it you won't, even if you've bought a new party outfit.

    And who thought it was an intelligent idea to offer Bristol and Birmingham students a last minute option to move to London?

  • One of the part-time options at BPP is occasional weekend sessions. While it wouldn't be a great commute from Bath or Bristol, it would certainly be do-able for most people.

    Of course, the London fees are higher and there would be travel and accommodation costs for these students, but they would not have to move to London permanently to take up a place on the part-time course.

    While one can't expect a provider to offer courses for which there is no demand, it's clear that BPP has expanded beyond the demand in the market and should re-think it's strategy.

  • Car boot sale???!! Nige, is that different to the scrap heap that the the College of Law has ended up on, according to news reports, your top directors have all left. Bargain anyone??? if any law firm were to lose four heads of department in one year serious questions would be asked. ..........
