You may already be aware of PRIME, the initiative by the legal profession to give fair access to quality work experience and supported by the Law Societies of England and Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. PRIME was launched in September 2011 with the aim of enabling fair access to legal work experience for school-age students from less privileged backgrounds. Click here for more information about why access to quality work experience is so important for the legal profession.

The PRIME commitment has been designed in such a way that it is relevant to any firm, large or small – and this is reflected in the range of current signatories.  As founder members, we would like to invite you to an event to hear more about PRIME and how your own firm can get involved.

At these sessions we hope to table some of the important issues around social mobility, particularly in the context of the highly competitive climate in which graduates are seeking training contracts, and to inform a wider group of firms about the PRIME commitment.
Where and when
