We offer work experience opportunities to school/college students who may not previously have had the option and introduce them to the law and our practice areas. 

As a founding member of PRIME – an alliance between law firms across the UK aimed at improving access to legal professions – we’re focused on helping students to propel their law careers forward. You’ll have the chance to develop your employability skills, to connect with other students and explore the possibilities a future in law could offer you.

Getting you up close and personal with our lawyers and support staff, this programme gives you the experience you truly need. We’ll open your mind up to all the possibilities by showing you what legal practice and support roles are all about. It includes:

First-class training

Learn and develop the skills that employers find desirable.

Our full support

30-35 hours of contact time per student on a programme that provides insight and inspiration.

A solid connection

Helping you stay in touch with the firm following your work experience programme.


To be eligible you’ll need to be in either Year 12 or Year 13 in England and Wales; or S5 to S6 in Scotland.

You must also meet two (or more) of the following criteria:

· Attend a non-fee-paying school.

· Be the first in your family to attend university.

· Be eligible for free school meals.

A number of places are also available on our work experience programme each year for direct applicants who do not meet these criteria.
