All of SJ Berwin's future trainees will study for the LPC at BPP Law School as part of an exclusive relationship formed just a week after the school was given degree-awarding powers.
As reported on www.the lawyer.com (24 September), BPP has become the first private sector company eligible to hand out degrees after the Privy Council awarded it the powers.
SJ Berwin decided to go with BPP after carrying out a survey of its current trainees.
The firm's head of learning Ann Collier said: "We've found that many of the law schools are doing more firm-specific courses with classes consisting of trainees for one firm only.
"Our trainee research showed the students has no appetite for a firm specific course but rather wanted the opportunity to network with trainees going to other law firms. The idea is to connect with the trainees a lot earlier on and give them more opportunity to network with each other."
The firm will be offering five bespoke modules to complement the LPC.
