BPP Law School has recruited its first ever director of quality assurance and enhancement.

Chris Maguire was previously at the Bar Council, where he spent 11 years monitoring quality factors related to legal education.

The hire comes as BPP continues its development, with the opening of new law schools in Manchester and Leeds.

BPP chief executive Peter Crisp said Maguire’s appointment would help maintain the school’s reputation for innovative courses and high standards.
