You will be supported throughout by the qLegal team, external solicitors and your fellow students.

Hear what our alumni say about the programme:

qLegal gave me a unique opportunity to contribute to the start-up ecosystem while pursuing my studies. Using legal tech, like the Clio case management system, was a great introduction to how I can futureproof my legal skills.

I 100% recommend this for anyone looking to be a lawyer! My qLegal experience helped me to have confidence in myself and I am no longer afraid to start applying for jobs in the legal sector.
— Shireen Husain Ali Del Pozo, qLegal student 2021-22
qLegal isn’t just a clinic, it invests a lot in its students. It’s a massive family, and to be a part of it is hugely beneficial. I have managed to make lifetime connections as a result. qLegal helped me secure my present role within the Civil Service. My experience helped me navigate my career path post-graduation.
— Daniel Harvey, qLegal student 2019-20

The opportunity to work on a case for a real client is also available on our 15 credit Entrepreneurship Law Clinic Module, which you can apply for in the same way as your other modules.
