Reply Link Marshall Hall KC 27 May 2011 at 19:54 “the research arm” trousered a few hundred thousand squid – to er….research why there should be even more bright-eyed bunnies signing up to pursue the CoL’s exams. I am sure Mr Savage is worth every penny of his squillions…nearly 4x the Prime Ministers salary seems a cheap price to pay for someone of his vast abilities. Reply Link CoL student 28 May 2011 at 15:01 Shouldn’t more be spent on reforming legal education and practice than widening a floodgate of students into law? The law society must think hard as to the role of LPC providers, in particular, its aim and objective. After all, CoL’s i-tutorial is, in my opinion, the begining of the end.

Reply Link Tom 29 May 2011 at 13:09 “Savage declined to comment” … a hopeful precedent, given all the tripe this idiot spouts. Reply Link Anonymous 29 May 2011 at 15:14 Given the growth of the CoL under the leadership of Savage I’m sure that he is a good senior manager. However, he and the Board of the College must realise that this level of pay is an embarrassment in the current economic climate with students struggling to pay CoL fees and often gambling that they will eventually find a training contract. The College is a complex organisation, but with under 1000 staff is small compared with many universities, yet Savage is paid well above the level of most university vice-chancellors, including those of world leaders such as Oxford and Cambridge and well above the pay scales of the heads of other charities. Come on Prof Savage, either step down gracefully (you must have a decent savings pot by now) or take a dramatic and public cut in pay – 50% would put you in the right ball-park for university VCs.

Reply Link Anonymous 31 May 2011 at 09:57 How does Savage feel about that when he is making a shed load of people redundant at the same time? Nice one.
