Why is D&I important to your Law Society?
Diversity is all around us, and the appreciation of it is especially relevant in our increasingly connected world.
Our Society aims to raise awareness of the importance and benefits of diversity in our society because we want our students to be confident in their varied backgrounds and the qualities that they can bring.
Highlights of ways that your Law Society has tried to increase diversity
The Society’s highlight event is our Annual Diversity Reception. The purpose of this event is to encourage our students to be proud of their diversity and recognise that employers place value on having a diverse team. This event involved a range of speakers and sponsors from diversity and inclusion organisations and their graduate recruitment teams. Last year this event was runner up for best event at the National Societies Awards.
