Student placements and projects

Our students are looking for work experience related to their studies throughout the year. By welcoming a Stirling student into your business, you’ll be gaining a valuable asset to help you tackle a specific project or need, as well as building relationships with the next generation of leaders.

What skills can our Law students offer your business?

Third and fourth-year undergraduate Law students (LLB and BA Law) look to gain front-line experience within a busy law practice or law-related organisation, enabling them to put their studies into practice and pick up valuable insights into the working world.

Examples of previous projects

  • Ashurst - shadowing and gaining an understanding the workings of the Legal Analyst/Legal Tech team and undertaking of a research project set by Ashurst Advance.
  • Bodies LLP - opportunity to gain practical experience of legal work across all divisions of the business.
  • Scottish Power Legal Services Team - opportunity to apply in practice the academic knowledge and theory learned in an in-house legal team.
  • The Law Society of Scotland - assisting with research project examining existing material relating to BAME inclusion in the Scottish and UK Legal professions.

When do students go on placement?

Students are available to join your business in both our autumn and spring semesters. Project scopes should be ready for the Autumn semester by early August and the Spring semester by early December.
