PRIME’s Virtual Legal Work Experience
We believe that everyone can access law, you included.
PRIME and our member firms are determined to ensure that everyone who wants to enter the world of law has an equal chance to do so.
Our firms offer legal work experience to young people from less privileged backgrounds and have now come together to help create PRIME’s Virtual Legal Work Experience Programme.
You will get to experience what real lawyers do every day, working on tasks that introduce you to different practice areas, including commercial and criminal law. You will also build legal skills and gain an understanding of what it means to be a lawyer, helping you to decide if this is the career for you.
“It covered a lot of law and really made me think about certain elements. It introduced me to what real law work could look like and what aspects of it I may want to chase in the future.”
PRIME Virtual Legal Work Experience student
Over 2,500 students have enrolled.
“The program gave a practical perspective of the work that would be done as a Lawyer carrying out a broad range of tasks.”
“Very informative, the tasks were super interesting and it felt as though I were really working on behalf of a law firm.”
“I liked that you could complete the tasks in your own time, and that every task was different. They were challenging but it showed me how I could work through them.”
