The College of Legal Practice
Offering practice-led highly flexible learning for today's legal profession, The College of Legal Practice is a new, practice-based training provider. The College works with legal services organisations and individuals who are willing to make the bold choice to change the way they learn.
Fully committed to increasing access to the profession, The College will offer programmes to support the increasingly diverse career pathways that are now available to those wishing to become a solicitor. From intensive, purpose-built virtual training programmes that enhance core qualification training, to those designed to develop experienced practitioners for the modern demands of the legal services sector.
Established in April 2019, The College of Legal Practice was set up by The College of Law in Australasia as a wholly owned UK subsidiary. The College of Law in Australasia is a mature and unique not-for-profit provider of professional legal education and market leader for lawyer qualification training in Australasia. Their intention in forming The College of Legal Practice was to diversify and extend their expertise in delivering modular, practice-based legal training into new jurisdictions around the world, building on 45 years` experience of working with leading law firms and training over 5,000 lawyers each year.
Professor Nigel Savage (Past President of the University of Law, former HEFCE Board member, and TDAP committee member) has led the creation of The College of Legal Practice as interim CEO and Dr Giles Proctor, as new CEO, will take the organisation`s development to the next stage from February 2020.
