PRLog - Aug. 6, 2012 - COVENTRY, U.K. -- Coventry University College, which opens for business in September, has appointed a barrister as its Head of Law.

George Ellison has come from a University in Liverpool, where he held a senior lecturing position, to take up the challenge of creating the Law courses at the College, which is situated in the Armstrong Siddeley Building on Coventry University’s campus.

Mr Ellison, started his working life in the police force before going on to train as a barrister and brings with him a wealth of experience.

He said:

“I am delighted to be working for Coventry University College. It is a brand new Higher Education institution in the City which offers a number of courses, part-time, full-time and professional qualifications but in a way that is tailored to fit the life you lead.

“I have been given a blank sheet to develop the Law courses and have spent a lot of time talking to practising solicitors in the area to see what they would expect from a recently qualified graduate and I have taken their comments on board.

“My aim is to develop high quality intensive courses and produce graduates who have the practical skills, as well as the academic qualifications, which will give them an advantage when they enter the world of work.”

The Law Department at Coventry University College will also have its own ‘law court’ that students can use to work on mock cases and act for the defence or the prosecution team. They will be assisted and observed by practising professionals in Coventry and beyond.

George Ellison added:

“Law is a subject that can be used in many professions. Our courses at Coventry University College will equip the graduate with the skills they need to succeed in their chosen career. However, even when you are in practice, there are still opportunities to learn and as part of our development, I am hoping to run CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses for both solicitors and barristers.”

John Dishman, Director and Chief Executive at Coventry University College, said:

“We are delighted to have someone of George’s calibre as our Head of Law. He is the ideal person to create and lead our Law courses as he knows what employers are looking for in graduates and so he will be giving them the benefit of his vast experience.”

Coventry University College offers Foundation Year, HNC, HND and degree level courses in Legal Studies and Legal Studies and Management.

Professional CILEx (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) courses are also available and these can be completed in one year.
