Back to Law Ambassadors

  • Our Back to Law Ambassadors share their inspiring stories of returning to the law. Six unique women share a common success story: perseverence until they secured the job they deserved.

    Our Back to Law Ambassadors will:

    • contribute to making returning to a career in law easier by tackling the stereotypes and assumptions many returners still face
    • increase visibility by sharing stories that can motivate people to take action
    • give returners confidence, guidance, and reassurance that the market needs returners
    • help returners focus on impactful skills (for example, skills-based CVs, a practiced elevator pitch, strong personal brand and presentation).

    The Ambassadors will engage in dialogue with firms and in-house teams encouraging them to review how they engage with returners to make the most of the talent on offer.
