Freshfields insight – life at a law firm

Widening access to the legal profession and broadening understanding of careers is something that is very important to Freshfields, and it is key to ensuring we are able to recruit the best and brightest talent from the most diverse talent pool possible.

We have long-standing successful relationships with our two partner schools in London – Redlands Primary and Haggerston Secondary – with whom we run several skills-based volunteering programmes and provide strategic advice through governance. We wanted to extend our reach and inspire children nationwide, to encourage them to consider the legal profession.

Our goal is to help young people develop the knowledge and understanding to consider law as a career option. By giving them insights into the day-to-day life of a lawyer, the varied skill sets and the range of options within law, we hope that we will make law more accessible and students will be inspired to think about a legal career. The e-learning resource we’ve developed with Cambridge-Hitachi allows us to reach pupils in a way that simply wasn’t possible before.

The resource is available free to all secondary schools. You can teach from the resource directly from their website (using the ‘Start teaching‘ button) or download the resource to your desktop if you prefer (using the ‘Download now’ button).
