• The College of Law Comes Top in Legal Week Survey

    17 April 2009

    The College of Law has been nominated as the most popular law school among undergraduate and LL.M law students in a major survey carried out by Legal Week Intelligence.

    The College was named as first choice by 34 per cent of survey respondents. The main factors influencing how students choose their education provider were revealed to be quality of teaching and employment prospects after graduation.

    Legal Week Intelligence, the research arm of the publication Legal Week, surveyed more than 2,500 students at Russell Group universities and major Graduate Diploma in Law course providers throughout February.

    The survey also asked respondents to rate law firms across a range of categories, including training provision, career options, work-life balance, prestige and partnership prospects.

    Overall leader across all the categories, Allen & Overy, as well as the second- and third- placed firms Clifford Chance and Linklaters all have exclusive training partnerships with The College of Law.

    Since 2006 the College has provided tailored firm-specific Legal Practice Courses to the future trainees of the three firms at its London Moorgate centre.

    From September this year the College will also be the preferred provider of the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) for Allen & Overy and Clifford Chance and from September 2010 for Linklaters.

    The College now also delivers the Professional Skills Course (PSC) and the Trainee Litigation Programme (TLP) to Clifford Chance’s trainees and is also the exclusive provider of the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT) to qualify the firm’s overseas lawyers for practice in England and Wales.
