'100% for You' campaign beginning at the University of Law

Posted by Hannah Oakman | July 12, 2016 | Students

The University of Law (ULaw) has unveiled a market-changing initiative ‘100% for You’, which puts students firmly at the heart of the organisation and provides the foundation for ULaw’s new vision for student success.

The ‘100% for You’ campaign builds on the university’s strong graduate employability rate. The new initiative involves a series of innovative measures that will deliver more support and academic excellence to those entering the legal profession. Among the first initiatives to be unveiled this week is a new 100% Employment Promise for 2016, offering ULaw LPC students half of their LPC tuition fees back in cash if they have not secured employment nine months after graduation, and a further credit, equal to the other half their LPC tuition fees towards another course run by ULaw and its partners*.

Dr Stelios Platis, CEO and Managing Director at The University of Law (ULaw), said: “At ULaw our students are at the heart of everything we do and we focus our efforts into ensuring their long term success. When our students succeed we succeed which is why we pledge 100% support, 100% excellence and 100% commitment. We were the first university to offer a money back Employment Promise and this year we are backing our students with an even bigger commitment with this new initiative.

Dr Stelios Platis added: “We are proud of our College of Law heritage and we are building on that success and tradition. We are now backed by a leading education group – Global University Systems (GUS) – which is fully committed to educational excellence, and gives us opportunities for dynamic new programmes. As we look ahead to the new academic year, there has never been a more exciting time for the university as we look to introduce further initiatives over the coming months, under the ‘100% for You’ banner.”

The campaign will reveal a series of innovative measures by strengthening the university’s offering and total commitment to its students. Further details will be announced in due course. 

ULaw is the largest legal training provider in the UK, working with 90 of the top 100 law firms. It offers an award-winning legal careers and employability service as well as one of the UK’s largest and most varied pro bono programmes with over 2,900 opportunities for students to put their skills into practise to better prepare for the job market.
