THE UNIVERSITY of Plymouth has launched its own law school in a bid to retain postgraduate law students in the South West.
As first reported by Lawyer 2B (October 2005), the University of Plymouth was in negotiations over the running of Exeter Universitys LPC, after the centre was abandoned.
Last month, the university took over the University of Exeters LPC and launched its own law school, running the GDL, LPC and a top up LLM course, available to students who have completed the LPC.
Plymouth Law School head, professor Simon Payne, told Lawyer 2B: The opening of the law school means that students wishing to stay in the SouthWest can now do so. There is now a full range of law courses available in this region, which otherwise would not exist.
Further LLM degrees in maritime and marine law are planned for 2007.
