The University of Law (ULaw) has announced an exclusive partnership with leading international law firm Trowers & Hamlins to provide legal and business training to the firm’s trainees, following a competitive tender.
The three-year deal will mean ULaw will be the exclusive provider of GDL, LPC and Masters-level business education and training for Trowers & Hamlins future trainees, starting from September 2015.
ULaw’s market-leading MSc in Law, Business and Management with its strong commercial focus embedded into the course was a key reason cited by Trowers & Hamlins for selecting the UK’s largest provider of legal education.
Trowers & Hamlins is a renowned international law firm with offices throughout the UK, Middle East and Far East. ULaw’s recent collaboration with the University of Exeter will mean that trainees working in its Exeter office will be able to study locally. Trowers & Hamlins’ other major UK offices are located in close proximity to ULaw centres in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
John Latham, President and CEO, ULaw, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Trowers & Hamlins to support their next phase of training and development. ULaw is committed to providing innovative legal and business training courses, which deliver the high standards of commercial awareness required by today’s dynamic and global legal market. Our national campus footprint will provide the support needed for the firm to meet its nationwide training requirements.”
Tonia Secker, Training Principal at Trowers & Hamlins, said: "We were very impressed with ULaw's offering, from the resources they will make available to our future trainees to the locations of their branches, which are all a stone's throw from our London and regional offices. We are confident that our future trainees will gain a commercial edge from their training that will prepare them well for their legal careers."
