  • To the poster above that says CoL should litigate - why? Why throw thousands of pounds away on litigating when Halliwells have no money?!?!? What a silly comment.
    Also, to the poster who says this story is funny - yes I'm sure its incredibly funny to all those employees who lost their jobs and now have families to support - really grow up!

  • The college of law takes on thousands of students each year that it knows will never obtain a training contract. Even though they pass, these students are left with huge debts and in an ulmost unemployable state. I hope the students are Ok but nice to see the COL get a taste of its own medicine. Thats called Karmic law, look that up on Westlaw.

  • "...you speak volumes about yourselves in not giving credit where and when it is due."
    Credit?? What credit is this? Lest we forget that the CoL had to take away 5 marks from every employment law paper because they couldn't be bothered to proof read their exam and realise that 5 multiple choice questions were exactly the same as the specimen paper they gave in the first place.
    Such ineptitude from a law course provider supposedly the best in the business, deserves no credit.
    Why doesn't Savage and his mates take a pay cut - then the loss won't look so bad.

  • David at 11.10am, and I guess you believe that all those poor individuals that were forced to take out those nasty credit cards, the 100% mortgage and loans for wide screen supersized HD 3D wafer thin TV's should not shoulder any blame for the credit crunch. It was all the bankers fault they forced me to overspend.
    Perhaps prospective students should do their research and apply a bit of brain power. If they do not and still go ahead in blissful ignorance they get what they deserve.
    Now go back to Mummy so she can wipe your a**e

  • Who the hell is allowing this kind of credit to build up? I say a full scale independent inquiry is required with Tony Blair as Chairman

  • Why is the COL allowed charitable status??
    I thought a Charity had to benefit society in general.
    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesnt the COL just serve the interests of students seeking a career in law?

  • Charity! What a joke!

  • In reply to the College of Law PR person on 22 September at 3:39 am, the CoL is clearly a business which is turning over a nice little profit, and thus is able to pay huge salaries to the likes of Savage. To quote a well known English playwright, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

  • The CofL does do charitable work with the Sutton Trust, supporting disadvantaged students who might be interested in a career in the law.
    Other than the horrendous amounts that it pays its head honchos it is not a particularly good payer - as a rule paying less than universities.

  • Many Universities to all intent and purpose are profit-generating businesses. Many have a clause in their accounts that one of their objectives is an "operational surplus", and there is invariably a senior board of management which effectively controls its own pay (they officially appoint a remuneration committee, but since they can appoint whoever they want this usually turns out to be a fig leaf).
    If you think the CoL's generosity toward its senior boffins is excessive, have a gander at some of the league tables compiled for VC pay - some have taken home approaching three quarters of a million.
