The Placements Department provides opportunities for students to shadow and assist solicitors from various high-profile City law firms at free legal advice clinics. Our aim over the next year is to continue the strong collaboration we have with our five partner firms: Reed Smith, Berwin Leighton Paisner, Dentons, Clifford Chance and DLA Piper. We aim to give our members a growing range of opportunities to gain legal experience.
Please look out for emails specifying 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
Placements for students to shadow and assist solicitors, Application workshops, Feedback sessions and General information evenings. We will also be holding networking sessions with Dentons during the 2016/2017 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.”
