BCU Solicitors' LLP
BCU Solicitors' LLP is a virtual law firm, located within the financial district of Shareville. It is a fully open access resource, which means anyone – from students to the wider public – can access it.
The idea of bringing to life an imaginary law firm, which could be used to support students studying on the postgraduate Legal Practice Course at Birmingham City University, came from tutors on the course in 2008. They have developed a curriculum model based on the Kolb model (1984), linking theory and practice.
BCU Solicitors' LLP has been shortlisted in 3 categories at the E-Learning Awards 2001, competing with resources created by the BBC, McGraw-Hill Education & EF Education First.
