The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has awarded BPP Law Schools Holborn branch top marks across all areas of its LPC.
The move will be welcomed by the Holborn arm, which was downgraded from excellent to very good in 2005 when it was assessed under the old Law Society grading system.
BPPs Holborn branch received the SRAs commendable practice grade, its highest rating across all six areas: assessment; leadership and management; learning and resources; quality assurance and enhancement; teaching and learning the curriculum; and students and their support.
BPPs Waterloo branch, meanwhile, has a commendable practice grading in five areas. The law schools Manchester branch, which was inspected in 2006, also has the highest SRA grade. Leeds, however, is yet to be assessed under the new system.
As first reported by Lawyer2B.com (22 January), BPP rival the College of Law was awarded top marks by the SRA for all its branches earlier this year.
The assessment visits are carried out every three years.
The cost of attending BPPs Holborn arm for the LPC is 10,500.
