As an organisation dependent on a talented workforce, we recognise the vital importance of education. We have a significant number of strong relationships with state-funded schools and further education establishments, including organisations for students with special needs. We work with children and young people in a variety of ways, such as reading programmes, work experience and voluntary work. Through these relationships we are seeking to widen access to the legal profession and extend the pool of talent from which we recruit.
