The University of Law has lost its contract with DAC Beachcroft.

DAC has signed up for a year with ULaw's rival BPP instead. Trainees currently studying their GDL and LPC at ULaw will continue their course at the former charity, but future intakes, and anyone else recruited for a 2016 start date, will be sent to BPP.

     
ULaw's house band, yesterday
         

DAC may have a relatively small intake, of around ten trainees a year, but it marks yet another in a string of firms to abandon ULaw. In 2013 the university lost Allen & Overy to BPP, representing 90 trainees a year. And in September Clifford Chance signed up to a three year contract with the breaded cat, taking hundreds of profitable students equating to millions of pounds with it.

Nobody from the University of Law was available to comment.

Perhaps this next round of re recruitments will have more commercial acumen, business skills, not too mention personal skills than those 'fine' DACB partners and associate outed for poor performance and swiftly recruited by Clyde and Co

Was it not a previous DAC trainee that was outed on roll on Friday for drunken toilet and waste bin shannigins with a male collegue? Let's hope BPP will bring more professionalism.
