BPP set to offer BVC in Leeds

BPP Law School is set to become the only national provider of the BVC after announcing plans to offer the course in Leeds.

The Bar Council validated BPP to run the BVC out of its one-year-old Leeds branch from September 2006. BPP will offer 48 full-time and 48 part-time BVC courses in Leeds. Manchester Metropolitan University is the only other provider of the BVC in the North.

BPP chief executive Peter Crisp told Lawyer 2B that the launch of the brand new course is in response to demand from students and the local bar. BPP currently has 120 GDL students in Leeds.

BPP’s law school in London has offered the BVC since 1997.
