Diversity

The diversity information on LawCareers.Net is brought to you by our Diversity Partner, Aspiring Solicitors. We will be providing fuller information on this page in due course.

Aspiring Solicitors is the United Kingdom's largest diversity platform specifically for law and in just two years has created 3,000+ legal opportunities for its members, resulting in 700+ vacation schemes and training contracts. Aspiring Solicitors' aim is to increase diversity in the legal profession through three key objectives, namely by:

  • providing free increased access opportunities and assistance to aspiring lawyers from all underrepresented groups;
  • educating and informing the next generation of the legal profession about the importance of diversity; and
  • promoting and increasing diversity within the legal profession.

LawCareers.Net and Aspiring Solicitors will be working together on a number of projects over the next 12 months.

The first of these collaborations is the announcement that all 16 of the mentees on Aspiring Solicitors' mentoring programme will be invited to attend CityLawLIVE or NationalLawLIVE, LawCareers.Net's careers conferences held each December. Both conferences offer attendees a full day of intensive, high-value contact and interaction with top law firms.
