Oxford Uni to join forces with social mobility venture PRIME
The University of Oxford is set to become the first higher education provider to join forces with PRIME, as the law-firm backed venture aimed at boosting access to the legal profession prepares to increase the number of in-house legal teams signed up. The university has set up a working group to consider how it can get involved with the social mobility scheme, with options including linking PRIME students with its academics, and organising sessions and conferences for the scheme's participants. Oxford also wants to help PRIME raise awareness of further education opportunities in law during and after law firm work experience places.
