ULaw and BPP confirm campuses will reopen this autumn

By on

Temperature tests and other safety measures to combat virus spread will be put in place

The University of Law (ULaw) and BPP Law School have announced plans to reopen campuses this autumn but with strict safety measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

The duo previously suspended face-to-face teaching in March following the outbreak and subsequent lockdown.

ULaw confirmed all of its UK campuses will reopen from September. Students will be subjected to temperature checks upon arrival in campus using thermographic cameras; plastic screens will be installed in libraries, receptions and student services; and one way systems implemented where possible. There will be directional signage with markers on the floors for students to adhere to social distancing, and sanitiser stations as well as wipes and cleaning products made available at touch points such as printers and PCs.

If government guidance changes in the next few months and ULaw is unable to open its campuses then courses will be delivered online. If a student is unable to travel to campus they will be able to take part in an online programme. There will also be the option for students to start in one campus and switch to another, a ULaw spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, BPP has said it will begin a phased reopening of some of its study centres by the end of September. Students will be able to attend small group study sessions, use library facilities, and book face-to-face appointments with their personal tutor.

BPP has committed to a return to face-to-face teaching but for students who are unsure about returning to the physical classroom, it is allowing them to continue with online learning.

It will implement safety measures including the monitoring and enforcing of maximum capacities in classrooms, libraries and public spaces; frequent sanitising of high-footfall areas; and sanitising stations with hand washing facilities on every floor.

Confused is BPP opening or not? They emailed saying last week saying for Sept everything will be online. Now im reading this isnt the case and a phased reopening is happening. Wtf

One of the money sad things about Corona is that it’s ruined many good businesses but has failed to take BPP and ULaw.


Kirkland SE

As incoming trainees at Kirkland we’re exempt from the LPC. Instead we have a day long workshop called “Private Equity 101”, fuelled by bottles of Dom Pérignon Rose Gold and caviar. Oh and we’re also given the keys to our first lambo.


Reality check

After tax you get under £90k… so assuming you live in a sleeping bag outside Liverpool Street and only eat biscuits from the meeting rooms it would take you 2 years to cop that lambo. Good luck saving up for the fuel after that!

It only takes one well placed Acca to buy a Lamborghini with the money.

Gambling of that nature is for the classless. You will be well suited to the junior intake of such US firms’ London offices.

You appear to miss the point. I’ve merely presented facts as to how a Lambo is purchased with an NQ salary. Chance is for the skill-less.

Brilliant job.

Drafting this is what the idiot in hurry does when he is not involved in IP disputes.



3 relates to people following the rules, and 9 is the rules themselves on the wall as a reminder.
