Links to Legal Professions and Mentoring

Birmingham is home to about 3,500 solicitors and 500 barristers and the Law School enjoys strong links with many of them.

We work closely with the Birmingham Law Society, which is the largest Law Society in the UK outside London; the four Inns of Court, especially Lincoln’s Inn; and we have strategic partnerships with Squire Sanders and No. 5 Chambers.

In addition, we have a close association with local Citizens Advice Bureau and not-for-profit centres.

Mentoring scheme

We run a mentoring scheme for students on the Graduate Diploma in Law/Common Professional Examination and Legal Practice Course programmes, which is supported by the Birmingham Law Society, the Birmingham Trainee Solicitor Society and leading firms in the region.

The scheme will pair you with a local lawyer who will help with any questions or concerns you might have about your future career.
