PRIME and our member firms are actively trying 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.

“Thank you for the opportunity to learn and develop my skills. The course dealt with a range of tasks from understanding the key issues from legal due diligence, to researching risks under the Bribery Act, to reviewing a commercial lease to give you a real sense of what a trainee does.”

What I cherished about the PRIME Virtual Legal Work Experience Programme was that it provided me with examples of drafting formal emails and responses to clients and supervisors. It has improved my confidence to better communicate and structure legal and coherent responses within the legal world!
