"We participate in PRIME programme."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm sees grades at A-level as only part of the picture. I was lucky enough to go to a good school and get good A-levels but I know some colleagues who didn't. It doesn't matter where you came from, it's where you're going that counts."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"The firm are quite clear that they will not reject your application based on academics alone (I know a number of firms won't let you complete the application form unless you have A's and a 2:1). They take your application as a whole. We also work with a number of schools that are considered to have students from under privileged backgrounds- we organise mentor sessions to help them find routes into law - this is something I have been able to get involved in as a trainee."
Second year trainee, Bristol
"We work with the Prince's Trust to encourage applicants from less privileged backgrounds to consider a career in the law."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"The firm has ongoing links to schools from less privileged areas who are afforded the opportunity to tour the firm and enjoy placements in the office."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"We take part in the PRIME scheme so that children from less privileged backgrounds come in and do work experience. We also attend schools to give talks on careers in law."
