Legal Cheek talks… law school exam f*ck ups

Were students right to kick off?

In our latest live Facebook broadcast, Legal Cheek’s Katie King and Tom Connelly discuss the anger-inducing topic that is law school exam f*ck ups.

First up, the London School of Economics (LSE). A wave of hysteria swept through its substantial LLB cohort earlier this week after the law school’s bigwigs decided to bring the date of a crucial property law exam forward by an entire month.

Not to be outdone, BPP Law School then embarked on an exam cock-up of its own. Having accidentally sent a recording of two tutors discussing a mark scheme to its Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) students, the university, sparking outrage, was forced to hastily replace an upcoming drafting assessment.

But was it a simple case of ‘accidents happen,’ or were students right to kick off?

Urgh please don’t put the LSE in the same sentence as the sham company that is the BPP

Fellow second year law student

I must say, I find legal cheek journalists extremely courteous and professional (especially regarding the technical error) and Tom was right to say without LC LSE students wouldn’t have gotten what they wanted. When we’re posting snide comments let us all remember that legal cheek are ultimately on our side (as Students) as they’re usually calling buainesses and institutions to account on our behalf. Thank you Legal Cheek.

KK has a real cheek going on about “nasty commenters” on LC. The fact is that LC’s journalism is consistently nasty, lowbrow, tabloid click bait witch hunting at best.

Fancy canvassing BPP to reduce our fees in recognition on the cock-up?
