No work placements as such, however, law firms do come on campus to make presentations and interview people. Whether you get a job as a result will depend on you. Obviously I am only talking about the UK. For the US you have to fend for yourself or get admitted by the UK office and ask for a secondment

Private Equity, do you know how UK firms look at EU qualified lawyers who have just graduated (ie have no work experience in their home country?)

Difficult question. Because you have no work experience you will have to go through the graduate recruitment programme and do an LPC. If you had the experience you could have worked for a UK firm but in the department/deal team that deals with your jurisdiction (unless they have an agreement with a local firm already). If you to apply for this graduate programme, you need to do so at least 1 year in advance. It will be difficult to do outside of the UK. My suggestion is to do an LLP programme in the top UK school and as soon as you start the course start applying for training contracts so you have a secured job after the graduation. UK LLM knowledge will also help you during your LPC exams

Hi. I could not get what does LLP programme stands for? And, if I am an international student, graduating an LLM from the University in Glasgow, I won't be able to work in the UK? And, by the ways how much does it cost to take LLP or LPC and the length of the course?
Thanks.

My guess is that the OP meant LLM (not "limited liability partnership").
This thread seems to be focused on England. The path to qualification in Scotland is different. Knowing nothing of the system, I will not comment on it.However it seems fairly safe to say that an LLM alone will not qualify you to practice law in Scotland.

You got that right!

If you want to practice in Scotland you'll need to go through the entire LLB programme... then you are gonna have to apply for a DLP (diploma in legal practice) before entering a period of practical training... the LLM won't give you credentials to practice (either as solicitor or advocate) in Scotland.
