London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 27, 2011 -- Top international law firm Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) and London-based Kaplan Law School have confirmed an exclusive training deal for HFW's trainees to receive their Legal Practice Course (LPC) at Kaplan Law School.
This agreement builds on an exclusive deal that HFW has with Kaplan Altior (formerly altior) for the provision of the Professional Skills Course for the last several years.
Ottilie Sefton, of Holman Fenwick Willan, said:
"Kaplan impressed us with their proactive approach to student and client care. We want our trainees to receive the very best training before joining the firm, as this can have a strong impact on their readiness to undertake their training contract. Kaplan's reputation for academic rigor and the emphasis that they place on helping students get to know their future firm will, we believe, provide our trainees with the best possible foundation."
Giles Proctor, Head of Kaplan Law School, said:
"Kaplan Law School is thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to Holman Fenwick Willan's success. With their market-leading trade, insurance and shipping work consistently winning awards, we know their standards are high and we will work in close partnership to develop a rigorous and inspiring programme of training."
Kaplan Law School teaches Nottingham Law School's market leading LPC and has the top quality rating for its LPC from the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. HFW trainees will participate in Kaplan Law School's "Bridge to Practice" Programme which delivers high impact, practical modules that simulate typical scenarios they will encounter at the firm, allowing the trainees to hit the ground running.
