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.
The firm’s Activate Programme is open to all Year 12 and 13 students, while its Accelerate Programme is aimed at Undergraduate students. Each scheme has 10 places on offer and will take place over 3.5 days in Foot Anstey’s offices in Bristol, Exeter and Southampton.
Participants in each programme will gain a valuable insight of what it’s like to work in a commercial law firm. They will join one of Foot Anstey’s legal teams and benefit from hands-on experience and learn about the day-to-day life of a lawyer and the wider skills needed to be pursue a legal career.
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.
