The University of Law (ULaw) in Guildford, near London, launched the new initiative for its legal practice course students in an attempt to "shake-up" the legal training sector following a 97 percent graduate employment rate, reports the U.K.'s Independent newspaper.
"Many businesses are now progressing with huge restructuring plans and therefore in reality, are recruiting internally only. This then clearly has an effect on the external recruitment processes," Ismail told CNBC.
Meanwhile, in California on Monday, a post-graduate student took her law school to trial. Anna Alaburda graduated in the top tier of her class nearly a decade ago, passed the state bar exam and set out to use the law degree she had spent about $150,000 to acquire.
However, since graduating from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2008, she has yet to find a full-time salaried job as a lawyer, according to the New York Times.
Alaburda is accusing her school of inflating its employment data for its graduates as a way to lure students to enroll.
"One must remember that universities are also businesses and are subject to legal claims. They have to protect themselves and ensure they remain competitive within the higher education market, whilst also being honest with potential students," Ismail told CNBC.
Thomas Jefferson School of Law wasn't immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC but a statement from the school, published by local media, said that it was whole-heartedly committed to providing students with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to excel as law students.
It added that it had a "strong track record of producing successful graduates, with 7,000 alumni working nationally and internationally."
