Taking your commitment beyond law firms
You don’t have to work for a law firm to be in the legal profession.
In-house legal departments provide important, relevant, and worthwhile insight into the legal profession, enhancing students’ understanding of the legal profession. Non-legal firms can partner with PRIME on work experience schemes or become members themselves.
This approach also develops stronger relationships between member firms and their clients, supporting one another to achieve the objective of ensuring fair access to work experience.
Details of how to partner with a law firm are available here.
In-house legal departments can also become PRIME members in their own right, and commit to running their own work experience schemes that meet the PRIME criteria. See What is Quality Work Experience? and The Commitment for more information, or click here to read about PRIME partnerships between law firms and other organisations.
Legal Social Mobility Partnership
The Legal Social Mobility Partnership is a collaboration of law firms, partner clients and commercial organisations, who work together to provide school-aged students from less privileged backgrounds access to a Work Insight and Skills Programme. The ultimate aim of the Partnership is to broaden access to the legal profession and developing students’ career aspirations.
