Teach Tech Law

Lessons centre on pupils developing business ideas, which relate to technology and enterprise. At the end of the programme, teams of pupils present their ventures to an expert panel of judges to win our 'Pitch It Competition' hosted by our students.
qLegal facilitates an externship work placement programme for postgraduate students at a number of start-ups in the LawTech, AI and compliance and regulatory sector. Students work with a start-up to gain first-hand experience in legal and technological services.
