After 5 months of balancing two full time jobs (one as a solicitor for a leading global law firm) and the other establishing Aspiring Solicitors, Chris White has resigned as a corporate solicitor to focus all of his efforts on Aspiring Solicitors.
The decision not only reflects Chris’ commitment to offering increased access, opportunity and assistance to aspiring solicitors across the UK, but it also demonstrates his passion and desire to make a positive difference to the legal profession by increasing diversity.
Commenting on Aspiring Solicitors’ growth to date, Chris said:
“Aspiring Solicitors has only been operating just under 5 months now so to have such amazing Founder Members and Professional Ambassadors on board, as well as Student Ambassadors and Representatives from so many Universities signed up, is a great validation of what we are trying to achieve. The new website will help us to build on the strong start we have already made in helping to increase diversity across the legal profession and I am tremendously excited about being able to now focus all of my efforts on building upon this positive momentum we have generated. The more organisations, individuals and students who come on board, the stronger we will be moving forward towards increased diversity in the legal profession”
