The single lot framework covers five key areas of expertise – including business affairs, real estate and estates, human resources, charities and international issues – and six firms have been appointed for an initial period of two. years, with a two-year extension option. Thorntons was also on the previous two executives, having provided service through APUC since 2012.

Ewan Miller, Partner and Head of Business Law at Thorntons, said, “We look forward to continuing to provide legal services to universities, colleges and associated organizations that use the APUC framework.

“We have been working with APUC since 2012 and are very happy not only to secure our position on the new framework, but also that our offering has ranked first in technical expertise. This is a testament to the skills, expertise and hard work of our team.

“The past 18 months have highlighted the importance for education providers to be able to adapt to difficult issues under tight deadlines, and the APUC framework model has enabled members to access legal services from quality in a transparent manner.
