  • "CoL’s other charitable activities added up to £1.7m"

    Shouldn't their other charitable activities add up to rather more, given that they are, y'know, a charity?

  • "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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Why is £850,000 related to the careers service classed as charitable activity?

  • How does Savage feel about that when he is making a shed load of people redundant at the same time? Nice one.
