PRIME

MacRoberts is a member of PRIME, an innovative initiative by the UK’s leading law firms to improve social mobility and inspire greater diversity within the legal profession.

Diversity & Wellbeing
  • What work experience do we offer?

    Our work experience allows young people from less privileged backgrounds to gain insight into the many different jobs which exist in a law firm. Students are given the chance to work alongside our lawyers on live matters and have exposure to our clients. Students also get the chance to visit different departments so that they can gain an insight into aspects of our business other than law i.e our professional support services such as IT, marketing and HR. Students are assigned a mentor to offer day-to-day support and guidance during the work placement.

    When does it happen?

    Our application process for work experience placements is now closed. 

    Further work experience opportunities will be available later in the year in 2021 and information about these will be published nearer the time. 

    Who can apply?

    Students who meet the PRIME criteria, namely those who are:

    • S2 to S6 in Scotland (preferably S4 to S6); and
    • Attend a state (non-fee paying) school; and
    • Be of the first generation in their immediate family to attend university

Diversity & Wellbeing at MacRoberts

At MacRoberts our goal is for our our staff to feel included, valued and nurtured within their business environment irrespective of their race, gender, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.
