College eyes global market for education

The College of Law wants to open campuses outside the UK according to chief executive Nigel Savage.

“I think eventually the college will be looking to establish colleges overseas. Legal practice is becoming global, therefore legal education needs to become global,” he said.

His comments came as the college unveiled a multimillion-pound strategic plan which included a proposal to open a £10m campus in Birmingham and a deal to provide material for the Open University's first full undergraduate law degree.

Savage also wants to entice students to return to the college once qualified to become part of “life long earning”.
