  • "Also, the University of Buckingham is a private university and has been so long before BPP became one."

    All the same, I think BPP sort of outclasses it.

  • "Richard Dawkins? Really? AND Ronald Dworkin? Surely not. "

    Go check the website. It does indeed boast them both. Pretty difficult to lie about something like that when push comes to shove.

  • As one of only 20 students who will be the first to graduate from BPP's 2 year law degree in 3 months I can wholeheartedly say BPP is *NOT* the closest rival to NCH. 2 hours of face to face teaching per week, with 15 other students does not compare to 1 hour of one on one teaching. If only I had known I would have to fund a year's fees all by myself (3 years worth of fees still charged and no SFE funding for that 3rd 'year')!

  • There's no way that College of Law should have charitable status. It's run like a business taking on many more students than will ever get training contracts while Savage takes a vast uncharitable salary. They should be made to come clean and pay tax as a private institution.

  • The startling thing about this story is the ease with which being "bright" appears to equate to being wealthy. £25,000 is apparently the average salary, and I'm almost certain that there are a number of bright people who could not afford almost 70% of their income on an LPC - so, perhaps it's the "bright" parents of the students who might assist?

    Frankly, if you can afford this and you are "bright" you should be angling for a top, established University rather than a "celebrity academic" endorsed, unaccredited cash cow - today's top lawyers certainly managed with the established law schools.

    Fundamentally, money doesn’t equal intelligence, a lawyer to be smart, hungry and committed, regardless of their background/means

    This outfit aims to attract the brightest students – does that include the ones who can’t afford the 18,000 a year fees?
