About this Event

This competition is open exclusively to students from non-Russell Group Universities

By signing up to the competition you agree to the Data Privacy Notice and the Rules & Guidelines. You further agree to provide us with your non-Russell Group University email address and you confirm that you have not secured a training contract.

BIUCAC 2020 is a newly established commercial awareness competition for law students attending non-Russell Group universities with the aim to highlight the overlooked talent at these law schools. This exclusive event is designed to enhance your CVs and to offer 12 valuable prizes at top City law firms.

Over the course of five rounds, you will research key topics that any City solicitor should understand, from the FTSE 100 to worldwide economic global affairs and essential business concepts. This knowledge will help you understand the commercial environment of law firms and their clients. Learning about businesses will allow you to present yourself with a better understanding of commercial awareness at an interview.
