It takes a village to make real social change – and even though we’re only changing the legal sector, it takes more than just law firms to make it happen.

 

First, PRIME wouldn’t happen without the work of other charities. Social mobility networks. Foundations. Training providers. All kinds of partners who help us reach and support young people from all kinds of backgrounds.

After that, there’s the in-house legal teams. Experts from all kinds of industries, they open the doors of businesses from broadcasting houses to bank giants. Some offer their own in-house programmes, and others partner with PRIME firms – but either way, we couldn’t do without them.
