Leading UK law school introduces online programme for Mauritian students

 Mauritius, 4 June, 2015: BPP University Law School, a leading provider of legal education in the UK, has launched its first ever online learning programme for undergraduates in Mauritius, allowing students to study for the globally-recognised, law qualifying LLB (Hons) degree via a live online classroom.

As a truly international organisation, BPP University Law School has forged a successful partnership with YK Business School to deliver this academic programme, which will enable successful graduates to progress onto professional study and to train as barristers.

At a lavish ceremony titled “Celebrating Legal Excellence in Mauritius” on 12 June 2015, with special guests Honourable S. B. Domah, Supreme Court Judge of Mauritius, Professor Karodia from YK Business School, Professor Peter Crisp, Barrister, Dean and CEO of BPP University Law School and Professor Julian Davies, Barrister and Director of LLB programmes at BPP, Peter Crisp said,  “We are keen to support the flourishing legal sector in Mauritius and this event is about recognising the advances that have been made, as well as the challenges ahead, in Mauritius.”

“Our new online programme will give students the flexibility to work around existing jobs and family commitments whilst studying for a world-class law qualification from experienced barristers and solicitors via BPP’s innovative online learning environment”, he added.

“The degrees that students earn online are exactly the same, in terms of quality of teaching and the end qualification, as those earned by students in the UK or anywhere else in the world”, Peter Crisp confirmed.

With over 20 years’ experience in delivering professional legal qualifications, BPP University Law School is one of the largest law schools in the UK, focussing on helping to build the legal careers of Mauritian students and other UK and international students.

BPP’s BPTC graduates gained more pupillages than any other UK law school*, there are more BPTC students than any other UK institution and its reputation for academic and practical excellence has ensured close industry links with the Bar profession and the Inns of Court.

 

This event was also attended by top govt. officials, diplomats, justice, eminent lawyers and representatives of various local educational institutions.
