The success of any legal practice is based on its ability to understand and meet the needs of its clients. Whether your clients are individuals or organisations, large or small, the need for diversity on the legal profession is growing.
We are committed to help the legal profession to be:
The Law Society Diversity and Inclusion Charter is the flagship diversity initiative of the legal profession. It is an instantly recognisable public statement of commitment by its signatories and a framework for positive action across all strands of diversity.
The procurement protocol is a simple public commitment by in-house legal departments to ask standard questions about the diversity policies and practices of law firms tendering for work as part of the normal tender process.
We have set out the business case for diversity and inclusion within the legal profession. It shows the benefits that a genuine and positive commitment to diversity and inclusion can bring to all our law firms – big and small.
Our bank of case studies highlight practical examples of good practice on diversity and inclusion in large and small firms.
Do you want support in progressing your career? Can you give something back by mentoring other professionals? We have launched a national mentoring programme for practising solicitors.
