Thirty students will be enrolled in the new programme, studying a commercial-focused syllabus. Alongside compulsory modules firm trainees will take electives in litigation, corporate and real estate.

In the north west, as of 2009 Cobbetts will be running a similar scheme with College of Law Chester, based upon six seats. Rival Halliwells will also be running a similar venture.
