ITV and Slaughters team up for PRIME social mobility scheme
ITV has teamed up with Slaughter and May to become the latest corporate legal team to back the PRIME social mobility initiative, as the broadcaster opens talks with Yahoo! and Lloyds Banking Group about a potential in-house collaboration. ITV legal director Barry Matthews (pictured) has taken the lead designing a full work experience programme, which will see sixth form students given opportunities at both ITV and Slaughters, adapting the magic circle firm's existing initiatives, which include weekly one-to-one tutorials, after-school workshops and events offering career insight. Slaughters is one of the 23 founding members of PRIME, a cross-firm initiative aimed at boosting access to the legal profession for students from underprivileged backgrounds.
