A unique new strategic partnership between the largest law firm in Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University (NTU) will bring a wealth of opportunities for both students and employees, through the development of several collaboration initiatives planned for the next three years.

The recently signed agreement between Browne Jacobson and Nottingham Trent University confirmed the intention to not only provide practical work experience and skills development for NTU students, but also the opportunity to shape the continuing education of Browne Jacobson employees through teaching programmes and apprenticeships on offer at NTU.

“Browne Jacobson and NTU have, for quite some time, enjoyed a strong relationship and this partnership agreement will help us to further align our strategic priorities, allowing for greater collaboration between our two organisations,” said Professor Edward Peck, Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham Trent University.

“Working closely with such a major local employer and leading law firm in the UK will bring a wealth of opportunities to our students and graduates, both legal and otherwise. It will also allow us to ensure that both Browne Jacobson and the University are prepared to meet the changing technological and workforce needs of the future.”

Iain Blatherwick, Managing Partner for Browne Jacobson commented:
“I am delighted that we have the opportunity to work more closely with NTU on a number of really exciting projects that will mutually benefit both NTU students and our people.

“There is a lot of synergy between NTU and Browne Jacobson. NTU has an outstanding reputation for being innovative and creating opportunities to build a better future for its students and for the city. Browne Jacobson is dedicated to developing talent for a strong future for our business and is passionate about investing in our thriving local community and promoting Nottingham as a dynamic city to work and study in.”

The compact agreement was signed during a meeting which took place on 16th April which both Professor Edward Peck and Iain Blatherwick attended, along with other senior team members of both organisations.
