Abstract

Equity in entering the legal profession is a vexed issue. Law Schools work hard to ensure that students are given equal opportunities to flourish in their studies and to assist students in their workplace transition. Research indicates that to transition to graduate positions, students need to gain some work experience because “the lack of such experience constitutes a major obstacle for first-time jobseekers”.
