The move follows a successful pilot of the use of OneSeach Direct's online search service on the College of Law's London course. Use of the same service will now be taught on the college's other courses in Birmingham, Chester, Guildford and York.
Richard Megson, sales and marketing director of OneSearch Direct, says: "In the future all conveyancing, including the local search, will be completed online to save time, cost and hassle. It is therefore essential that the next generation of solicitors becomes familiar with new approaches to conveyancing."
Nigel Hudson, assistant director of development at the College of Law, says: "The future for conveyancing is online. This move will help to ensure that our students have up-to-date conveyancing skills before going into practice."
