The Law Society has awarded all five of the College of Laws branches top marks following a recent assessment visit. The law schools branches in Birmingham, Chester, Guildford, London and York have now received the Law Societys commendable practice grade, its highest rating in all six assessment areas, for its LPC.
College of Law chief executive Nigel Savage said: Its very important that we deliver the same high standards in each of our centres.
Meanwhile, BPP Law School has received top marks in five out of six assessment areas for its Waterloo branch.
The Law Society overhauled its grading system in October 2005. Law schools are assessed and graded in six areas: assessment; leadership and management; learning and resources; quality assurance and enhancement; teaching and learning the curriculum; and students and their support. The assessments will be carried out on a three-year cycle. Ratings are subject to ratification by the Law Society Council.
