Sold: why the sale of the College of Law may have a global impact
"What I would expect the College to seek to do is to establish itself as a globally recognised provider of legal education that transcends (as far as possible) national boundaries..."
So the College of Law has announced it is to be sold to a company managed by Montagu Private Equity. We do not know the price but the proceeds of sale will be in excess of £200million which will go to a charity –The Legal Education Foundation. The Foundation promises “to promote the advancement of legal education and the study of law for future generations of students through bursaries, scholarships and grants.”
