QMUL Placement Scheme 21/22
BCLP’s Legal Placement for QMUL second year LLB students offers the opportunity for three students to spend an academic year in our London office, gaining practical experience in three market-leading areas – Real Estate, Litigation and Finance.
Students will benefit from departmental legal training and will expect to receive a diverse range of legal tasks with a high level of responsibility in one department. The programme will allow students to take part in an assessment centre for a Training Contract at the end of the placement.
Students will spend their third year on placement at BCLP commencing in August each year, as part of a four-year qualifying law degree. The internship will be non-rotational, affording students the opportunity to embed in one area of the business and develop high quality legal skills and knowledge.
Each student will also benefit from the firm’s Trainee Solicitor induction programme and department specific training sessions, the supervision of a UK qualified Solicitor, and a trainee ‘buddy’ scheme.
Students will be required to complete a reflective learning log each week whilst on the placement, which will outline work they have undertaken and skills gained.

The programme is open to LLB and ‘Senior Status’ LLB students upon completion of their second year of the QMUL LLB programme. Students must achieve an average of 2.1 across both their first and second year results to be considered and will be required, if selected, to transfer to the LLB Law in Practice.
