About the Ethnic Solicitors Network

We are committed to promoting inclusion in the legal profession, reflecting the diversity of our society. We provide an opportunity for solicitors from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and their allies to have their voice for heard, allowing us to represent you effectively.

What does the Ethnic Solicitors Network do?

The Ethnic Solicitors Network (ESN) 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 ESN 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.

Why should I join?

Make your voice heard by engaging with the Law Society on diversity matters.

Membership of the ESN is free, and is open to all solicitors and their allies.

Members benefit from:

  • specialised events and training
  • networking opportunities
  • regular e-newsletters and updates
  • access to a community of ethnic minority lawyers
