BPP’s legal division drives 29 per cent growth

BPP Law School has outperformed the rest of its parent company with a turnover growth of 29 per cent in 2004.

The news comes in today’s (16 March) annual statement. The law school reported income of £19.8m, up from 2003’s £14m.

Meanwhile, turnover for the BPP group as a whole was £118.7m, a rise of seven per cent, with the law school accounting for 65 per cent of that growth.

The news comes ahead of the opening in June of a new Manchester law school. Last September BPP opened its first regional law school in Leeds, and in March 2004 Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Herbert Smith, Lovells, Norton Rose and Slaughter and May signed exclusive agreements for provision of the City LPC with the law school.
