British High Commissioner to Pakistan Philip Barton hosted a dinner to celebrate the 'Launch of BPP University Law School's LLB Degree in Pakistan'.
The BPP University Law School, a leading provider of legal education in the UK, has launched its first-ever law programme for undergraduates in Pakistan, allowing students to study for the globally-recognised law qualifying LLB (honours) degree with its exclusive partner -- Roots Ivy University College, says a press release.
Some high-profile guests attended the event, including the British high commissioner; Minister of State for Education Baligh-ur-Rahman; Punjab Minister for Education Rana Mashood; Punjab Higher Education Commission Chairman Professor Dr. Nizam-ud-Din, and Senator Chaudhry Tanveer Khan.
Also present on the occasion were Dean and CEO of BPP University Law School Professor (Barrister) Peter Crisp, and Barrister and Director of LLB Programmes at BPP Professor Julian Davies, International Commercial Director for BPP University Lil Bremermann-Richard and Head of International Projects at BPP University Nicole De Caires, along with Mr & Mrs. Mushtaque Rasool Chaudhary, founder & chief executive of the Roots School System, Pakistan, and Khadija Mushtaq, chief executive of the Roots Ivy Education Group.
The BPP University Law School has forged a successful partnership with the Roots Ivy University College to deliver the LLB (honours) degree in Pakistan, which will enable successful graduates to progress onto professional study and train as barristers. This opportunity allows students to study exactly the same degree offered in London without bearing the high financial costs of travelling abroad, whilst still receiving weekly teaching from BPP University lecturers with the support of local Roots Ivy experts.
Speaking on the occasion, British High Commissioner to Pakistan Philip Barton said: "I am delighted that the BPP University is going to be working with Roots

IvyUniversity College to bring the UK-certified law degrees to Pakistan. This will help both institutions reach more people with high quality education. It will bring important additional skills to Pakistan's economy and assist with the development of the country's legal profession.”
Peter Crisp of the BPP University Law School said, "We are keen to support the flourishing legal sector in Pakistan and this event is about recognising the advances that have been made, as well as the challenges ahead, in Pakistan."
"The degrees that students earn while studying in Pakistan at Roots Ivy 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 added.
Khadija Mushtaq of the Roots Ivy Education Group said with over 20-year experience in delivering professional legal qualifications, BPP University Law School is one of the largest law schools in the UK, focusing on helping to build the legal careers of Pakistani students and other UK and international students.
