MacRoberts is a member of PRIME which is 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?

    The next round of Work Experience Placements will take place in October and November 2019.

    Who can apply?

    Students who meet the PRIME criteria namely those who are:

    • S2 to S6 in Scotland
    • Attend a state (non-fee paying) school
    • Be, or have been, eligible for free school meals
    • Be of the first generation in their immediate family to attend university
    How do I apply?

    Our application process for the PRIME Work Experience Programme will open in August 2019 when application forms will be available to download.
