BPP Law School has become embroiled in a spat with Leeds MetropolitanUniversity following the opening of BPP's latest branch.
As first reported by The Lawyer (12 September), Leeds Met raised objections to the way BPP, which recently won the exclusive contract to provide the LPC to the five-strong City consortium, has heralded the opening of its Leeds base.
Leeds Met and BPP have exchanged correspondence recently regarding the ownership of the trademark 'Leeds Law School', which the university registered in 2001. Leeds Met is believed to have been disgruntled after BPP referred to itself as 'Leeds Law School' on its website and on a poster.
BPP chief executive Peter Crisp said any confusion caused by the use of the phrase cameaboutcompletely inadvertently and that the matter had been resolved amicably. He also admitted that there were a few red faces at BPP, particularly because it had recently launched an IP centre of excellence in Leeds.
