"Engaging with fellow students and seasoned practitioners helped me to understand what was required to meet the client's desired outcomes. The experience gave me a more rounded perspective of the legal challenges and commercial realities facing real businesses".
Damian Moran, qLegal Student Adviser

Training and development

Student advisers undergo an extensive training programme delivered by qLegal staff, the legal profession and academics.

qLegal is a vehicle for the study and practice of law. Although it provides a useful service to the start-up community, it is primarily about putting theory into practice whilst allowing you time to reflect on your experiences.
You will learn from your clinical legal experiences in three principal ways:

  1. Working on real client cases
  2. Learning from qualified solicitors
  3. Reflectively evaluating your experiences

We work closely with students from the moment they join us. Our aim is to help students develop both professionally and personally.

Skills

By taking part in a qLegal programme, you will learn essential skills to enhance your employability including interviewing skills; factual analysis; legal research and drafting skills; commercial awareness; an understanding of client care, client expectations and relationship management; case management; time management; problem solving; stakeholder management; office and administration skills and an understanding of professional conduct and ethics relevant to legal practice
