You are committed to your students. So are we.

We know you are committed to your students. We also know that commitment goes beyond the classroom: from their present to their future.

PRIME is the legal profession’s commitment. It’s a commitment to opening up the legal profession to young people who, through no fault of their own, might otherwise find work experience opportunities hard to come by.

Teachers and careers advisers have a vital role to play in supporting students to make the most of their work experience opportunities. We’re here to help.

Just so you know, PRIME itself does not offer or broker places on work experience schemes. To organise work experience for a suitable student, please get in touch directly with any of the law firms listed here, or any of our third party providers who can advise you on what work experience is available.

Feedback from educators and career advisers is the best way we can improve PRIME. If you’ve got any comments or suggestions, drop us a line here

PRIME's member firms target students who:

Schools #1

1.

Are school-age, in either Year 9 to Year 13 (England and Wales); S2 to S6 (Scotland); or Year 3 to 5 or Lower and Upper Sixth (Northern Ireland)

Schools #2

2.

Attend a state (non-fee paying) school

Schools #3

3.

Will either be the first generation in their immediate family to attend university or who are, or have been, eligible for free school meals. Where this information is difficult or sensitive to obtain, the student should attend a school that is significantly above the regional average in the proportion of its students eligible for free school meals.
