BPP Law School has had a storming year under the guidance of chairman Carl Lygo. In March, legal education was all shook up when three firms broke away from the consortium of eight top firms signed up to the ‘City LPC’, with both the College of Law and BPP winning out. While Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance and Linklaters signed up to a bespoke LPC from the College of Law, the remaining five consortium members – Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Herbert Smith, Lovells, Norton Rose and Slaughter and May – dumped two of their existing providers and from 2006 will be signed up exclusively to BPP’s City LPC.
Then In June 2004, BPP revealed it would be investing £3m to launch in Manchester, with capacity for 600 students. This came just a year after it opened in Leeds and Waterloo, London.
This led the law division to outperform its parent company BPP Holdings, with turnover up 28 per cent to £10.1m. Turnover for the whole group was £57.6m, up just 3 per cent on last year.
