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.
BPP dean Peter Crisp said: “Our vision is to have our programmes available all over the country to expand our geographical footprint. These cities have very thriving legal communities so it’s great that we can serve all those committed to law.”
Each new centre is validated to house between 40 to 60 LPC students meaning that BPP will still be playing catch-up with the CoL in terms of student numbers.
