ULaw To Offer Barrister Training At Newcastle University
The University of Law (ULaw) is bringing its barrister training to Newcastle for the first time.
ULaw will deliver its Bar Practice Course (NPC) and BPC LLM through an ongoing collaboration with Newcastle University. The first group of barristers will begin their studies in September of this year, following approval from the Bar Standards Board (BSB).
Dr Jonathan Galloway, Head of Newcastle Law School, commented: “I am delighted to see that our partners at The University of Law have secured Bar Standards Board approval to run a new Bar Practice Course from the Newcastle University campus from September 2022.”
“This expands on an already very successful partnership between our respective Universities for the benefit of our current and future students, as well as other aspiring barristers in the North East and those that want to study here. I know that this new course will be a success and more importantly I know it will provide an excellent educational experience for our next generation of barristers,” Galloway continued.
ULaw and Newcastle University began their partnership in March 2021, offering the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) as well as Legal Practice Course (LPC) and several prep courses for the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE).
