The UK’s newest private university is launching the LLB (Hons) and LLB (Hons) Business Law at its centre in Whitehall Quay in a bid to open its doors to more students that wish to study from home.

BPP Law School chief executive Peter Crisp said: “Our law school has established an excellent reputation amongst the legal sector in Leeds, and this year we’re extending our teaching programme to undergraduates.

“Law degrees are also being introduced for the first time at our Bristol and Birmingham centres, and at New College Swindon to add to our existing centres.”

BPP now provides the LLB at six sites, including London and Manchester plus this year’s new centres in Birmingham, Bristol and Swindon.

All BPP’s degrees can be studied full-time over two or three years, as well as part-time via online or distance learning.

The news arrives just five months after arch-rival the College of Law announced that it is to make its first foray into the LLB market, with the launch of an £18,000 course in Birmingham, Chester and London (see story).

BPP’s LLB courses will be launched this September at the four new locations.
