Then there were 33… what unis made it through?

33 university teams have progressed to Round 3 and the Quarter Finals of the Aspiring Solicitors Commercial Awareness Competition 2017/18.

The University of Bristol have overtaken Queen Mary University with most teams in the Competition, closely pursued by Kings and BPP.

However, Kings College London and York have already secured two teams each in the Quarter Finals by registering the best combined scores for Round 1 and Round 2.  They are joined by teams from BPP, Queen Mary, ULaw, UCL, Cambridge, Warwick, Hertfordshire, Sussex and Oxford teams!  Well done to you!

Only 40 teams will progress from Round 3 to the Quarter Finals where all teams will be in the hunt for six legal work experience placements with Clifford Chance, Dechert, Mayer Brown, TLT, Travers Smith and Barclays Legal (and a bespoke suit each courtesy of LexisNexis).

Round 3 takes place 27 November-1 December.  Good Luck!
