Legal Placement

Our industrial legal placement for second year LLB students offers the opportunity to spend an academic year in global law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP), gaining practical experience in four market-leading areas – Real Estate, Real Estate Finance, Commercial Disputes, and Commercial Construction.

Formed by one of the biggest transatlantic mergers to date, at BCLP students will be immersed in a fully integrated international team with a platform for continuous growth and development. 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.

The Placement

Students will spend their third year on placement at BCLP, 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.

Application and Eligibility

The programme is open to all LLB and ‘Senior Status’ LLB students upon completion of their second year. 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. Mitigating circumstances regarding academic results will be taken into account during application and assessment.
