Foot Anstey launches work experience programmes to find a new generation of lawyers

Foot Anstey LLP, the national law firm, has announced the launch of two new work experience programmes dedicated to activating and accelerating a new generation of lawyers and helping create more diversity in the profession.

Students will also have the opportunity to take part in a recruitment workshop where Foot Anstey’s experts will help them develop key skills, such as CV writing, interviewing, and presenting, which will help the Year 12 and 13s when applying for university and all participants when they seek jobs in the future.

Foot Anstey will be working with schools located near its office to encourage Year 12 and 13 students to apply to the programme.
