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.
