BPP to be exclusive education provider to Boodle Hatfield trainees

BPP Law School has continued its assault on the postgraduate legal education market by adding another firm to its expanding law firm roster.

The law school giant has struck a deal with Boodle Hatfield to be the sole provider of the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) to all of the firm’s future trainee solicitors from 2012. It is the 27th such deal the school ha signed up to.

In a statement from Boodle Hatfield a spokesperson said: “We’re very pleased to be partnering with BPP to provide GDL and LPC training for our students.

“We’re impressed by the quality and breadth of tuition they offer and the wide variety of options available for our students.”

The firm, which has offices in London and Oxford, takes on around five trainees each year and offers full sponsorship and a maintenance grant.

The news comes after BPP cancelled its part-time GDL courses in Birmingham and Bristol. It said the decision to withdraw the courses was made due to low demand (22 September 2011).
