• College of Law Claims Scalp After Rival Has to Cut Jobs

    13 July 2009

    Nigel Savage, chief executive of the UK's largest law school The College of Law, has claimed that the initial success of the College's Manchester site, which opens in September, is partly responsible for job cuts at its main rival.

    Savage told Crain's Manchester Business that the new centre, due to open in New York Street, had signed up 100 more law students this year than it planned for.

    He said he believed that this had led to London-based rival BPP Law School, part of BPP Holdings, failing to attract sufficient students and being forced to cut staff at its Manchester campus.
