    It really isn't as simple as that. One person's good work experience is another person's bad. Sometimes work experience won't make up for it. Sometimes it will, but it will be more about how you explain it rather than what it is.

    What JSP said and not enough detail by you to give anything other than general advice.
    You also have the problem of acquiring the amazing work experience you are after.
    The how you sell it point pointed to by JSP is very important.
    Having big names on the CV from a spoon fed scheme may still not have as much influence as something unique or which shows positive things about you and your potential to be a lawyer. If you have average grades, then you are going to have an uphill battle on getting onto some of the nice pre arranged VC schemes.
