We believe in providing law work experience that helps you shine


Investing in talent is one of Burness Paull's key goals. That's why we offer law work experience placements built around you.

Each year, in partnership with PRIME, we offer students S4 to S6 the opportunity to take part in a structured law work experience placement in our Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices.

PRIME is an alliance of law firms across the UK, committed to improving access to the legal profession through law work experience.

As a firm Burness Paull believes the legal sector should be open to talent from all economic backgrounds. That's why we are happy to make the PRIME Commitment.

It's about ensuring work experience placements are available to all students who have the drive and passion for a career in the legal sector.

If that sounds like you, and an insight into working at a top-tier commercial law firm is an exciting prospect, we'd love to hear from you.

Please note, we accept work experience applications from both those who meet the PRIME criteria and those who don't.
