With reference to the article in The Lawyer, 7 January, concerning the position of Nottingham Law School, I would like to correct any impression given that we are reducing our commitment to the Legal Practice Course via the part-time route.
In fact we are fully committed to the concept of the part-time LPC courses and that is why we plan to increase the numbers of students who will be able to study the block release version of the course.
Our view is that, following the Law Society review, the acknowledged excellence of our part-time course is best maintained through consolidating our efforts into the block release version of the course.
Professor Peter Jones,
Nottingham Law School.
