The Law Society is committed to promoting inclusion in the legal profession, reflecting the diversity of our society. We provide an opportunity for solicitors from black and minority ethnic backgrounds and their allies to have their voice for heard, allowing us to represent you effectively.
The Ethnic Minority Lawyers Division (EMLD) supports and promotes solicitors and their allies through the provision of career-enhancing events, information and networking opportunities.
We provide an opportunity for you to make your voice heard, comply with regulatory and compliance issues, run your practice and develop your career.
The EMLD was developed to facilitate greater engagement between ethnic minority solicitors and the Law Society. The division encourages solicitors to use their experiences and expertise to support aspiring solicitors or colleagues seeking to progress in the legal sector.
Make your voice heard by engaging with the Law Society on diversity matters. Membership of the EMLD is free, and is open to all solicitors and their allies.
