BPP Law School is on course to overtake arch-rival the College of Law (CoL) as the biggest Legal Practice Course (LPC) provider as it gears up to launch three new branches.
BPP is planning to open in Cambridge, Liverpool and Newcastle next year, a move that will give the law school nine branches compared to CoL’s eight. The move follows BPP’s expansion into Birmingham and Bristol earlier last month.
