BPP Law School is shoring up its place in an increasingly competitive legal education market by introducing the first GDL that can be studied from January.
The school has turned its back on the usual September start date and become the first institution to offer the January start.
The school’s dean Peter Crisp said: “Vocational students really just want to get on with it and get to work as soon as they can, so I think this will really benefit those students.”
BPP has also announced that it will run a new LLB that can be studied from February this year.
Meanwhile, the school has been approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to introduce a new online LPC from September 2010.
As part of the course students will be able to attend real-time lectures remotely via the internet.

Oh BPP, what ideas will you half bake next week?
Unsuitable or offensive?

How does this help move would-be lawyers through more quickly? So they finish in September and get their results in October. They still have to wait until the following autumn to start their LPC/BVC. Sounds like a gimmick to catch out unsuspecting law students.

Makes you wonder where the market it is for the LLB and GDL these days. In two years time, why would anyone bother to qualify as a solicitor when anyone will able to own a law firm?...actually, the same question applies today doesnt it?

I think they've also half baked the idea of a January LPC to help shove more no hopers and desperate people through the LPC conveyor belt.

Hmmmm.... they are charging thousands of pounds to do the course but it makes you wonder where the money is going if they can do everything online??

What's up with you lot! I have studied a part-time GDL with BPP. It was worth every penny. Creating on-line courses does not come cheap. I would pay more for the opportunity to study in such a flexible way. Trust me private institutes such s BPPare the future, like similar institutions in countries such as Australia, BPP and their courses excel above their competitors.
