At BPP we have over 20 years’ experience in delivering training and education to the legal sector.

Our experience

Our portfolio ranges from apprenticeship programmes all the way through to professional development. Over 60 UK and global law firms, including four out of five of the 'Magic Circle', send their trainees exclusively to BPP University Law School. Our approach is to shape students into commercially focused and highly employable solicitors or barristers. We help lawyers build their careers and carefully structure our programmes to meet the wide-ranging needs of professionals across the sector.


We deliver the Legal Practice Course (LPC) exclusively to more than 60 leading law firms in the UK. Our focus is to develop trainees who are ready to embrace the demands of a training contact in a rapidly evolving professional legal sector.

BPP was one of the very first training organisations to deliver the new solicitor and paralegal apprenticeship standards from September 2016.

Our programme delivers first-rate education and training, with an emphasis on developing the skills and competencies of a lawyer - as well as the knowledge. This enables trainees and law firms to maintain a competitive edge to meet the needs of their clients. Developing commercial awareness in future trainees is at the heart of our LPC delivery.

At BPP, we have proudly earned our place as one of the leading law schools in the UK. We train more law firms’ trainees and solicitor apprentices than any other law school in the country. We also have more students in pupilage than any other provider.

We pride ourselves on building and shaping legal careers at every level of study. We also help to develop all of our learners into commercially focused and highly employable solicitors and barristers.

In addition, we offer a range of non-legal programmes in finance, leadership and management and other professional development courses.

“BPP University provides our trainees with the essential technical training...

required to become a solicitor, in the context of a strong understanding of the commercial environment in which we operate. We believe that this will provide them with the best platform for what we hope will be a long legal career with DWF.”
