The Placements Department provides opportunities for students to shadow and assist solicitors from various high-profile City law firms at free legal advice clinics. We have strong collaborations with five partner firms: Reed Smith, BCLP, Dentons, Clifford Chance, and DLA Piper. Our goal is to develop our members by providing growing opportunities to gain legal experience.
Students should watch their emails for information on application deadlines for placements and general information throughout the academic year. Additionally, if you are interested in forming a partnership with QMPBS, please do contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to arrange a meeting and to receive further documentation.
What We Do
Our department facilitates placements with top London firms, where students gain valuable experience shadowing solicitors, registering and interviewing clients, and writing legal advice letters. We also hold numerous information evenings and networking sessions with our partner firms throughout the academic year.
“This placement (Clifford Chance) was excellent in exposing me to the practical world of law.(…) It has allowed me to not only shadow solicitors but also engage with clients in meetings in the form of questions and assistance.”
“This placement has been simply impeccable (Dentons) as it enables you to work in a small team interviewing real clients who you prepare a folder for to present to solicitors.” “(…)They are also a superb route to making new friends and meeting legal individuals who are ahead of you and who can provide you with unique advice and guidance. Because you are responsible for representing QMUL as a QM student on these placements, it will reflect your determination and productive nature as a candidate striving for success. Therefore I highly recommend these Pro Bono placements to all.”
