How does LawCareersNetLIVE promote diversity in the legal profession?

At LawCareers.Net we aspire to demonstrate and promote a diverse and inclusive legal profession that reflects the society it represents, and have put together a set of guidelines in terms of our commitment to diversity at our events.

We ask our sponsor firms to consider these diversity guidelines when putting forward speakers and selecting workshop leaders and others who will represent the firm at the event. We encourage speakers not fulfilling any of our diversity criteria to instead promote someone who does to appear in their place.

We blind screen applications with two of the LawCareers.Net team assessing each application. We review all applications regardless of academic result or university attended.

This year we are working with several diversity organisations to promote our LawCareersNetLIVE events to students from underrepresented backgrounds and will be offering a number of free places across our events to delegates from these organisations.

For more on how we are supporting those who might not be able to afford the delegate fee, see below.
