LPC Work Placement Scheme
What the firms and organisations say about our students:
- We have always found the students to be of an extremely high quality with an advanced understanding of the areas of law that we cover.
- With your students, I always like to place them with either recently qualified solicitors or trainees. There are so many questions and discussions they need to have with the group who have passed through the process just ahead of them.
- The aptitude and knowledge shown by the student was on a par with a law professional and it was a pleasure to have her working here.
- Your students sat in our corporate department and also undertook work for our property and employment teams. Both were very courteous and tackled whichever task they were given with a high level of diligence and a willingness to learn. We wish them both well with their future endeavours.
- We are delighted to be of assistance to those who are on the road to qualification and to be associated with the scheme that you have successfully run for many years.
We run a very successful work placement scheme for our students and enjoy the support of many firms of solicitors and other organisations which provide work placements for Cardiff LPC students. Our placements offer a great opportunity for those students who do not have training contracts or recent legal work experience to gain experience early on in the course in our October reading week.
What our students say about their placement experiences:
- Amazing experience. Experienced a court case from start to finish.
- The atmosphere was very friendly and larger commercial firms now seem less intimidating having seen what they are like from the inside.
- Very helpful, it helped me to decide which electives to choose and gave me an insight on how to conduct client meetings.
- The solicitors were excellent. They made me feel very welcome and explained every point and always gave me work to do. The work was varied and allowed me to apply what I am learning in the LPC.
- Extremely helpful. Great experience, great for my CV and great for my confidence.
- I had a fantastic time. They were all very friendly and made me feel welcome! I’d love to go back!
