Dear University of the West of England

Please provide sight of all records held, including communications between the University of West England (UWE) and third parties such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority, on the validation of UWE courses deployed by the University of Derby's (UoD) College of Business, Law and Social Sciences between 2015 and 2019. The record should include any references to retrospective validation of the UoD Law LLM / Legal Practice Course.

Your response should focus primarily on a course used by any third party university that may not have had proper UWE validation circa 2016-18.

Please also provide collaboration approval records in respect of the above.

The response should include any records that relate to the above but are referenced in terminology other than 'validation'.

Yours faithfully

David Gale

Dear FOI Requests,

Thank you for your response. I appreciate that the use of a slash punctuation mark in the original request may have caused confusion.

Could you please respond per my original request to cover the Legal Practice Course as defined in your response. If you feel unable to make that adjustment, please regard this as a fresh request.

To assist you, validation committee or sub-committee (or equivalent) related information can be confined to the years 2016-18.

Yours sincerely,

David Gale

Dear Foi Requests,

Thank you for your response.

I will note that your response appears to be in direct conflict with a response recently provided by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

If upon review you believe that the UWE may have been misled, it will be your lawyers' obligation to report the matter directly to the SRA.

Yours sincerely

David Gale
