Why is D&I important to your Law Society?
As a diverse university we want to make sure everyone has a say in our society and how it is run. Currently, there is a lack of diversity in the legal industry and due to this we want to make it our mission to make sure no underrepresented group is left out through promoting a wide variety of schemes.
Highlights of ways that your Law Society has tried to increase diversity
This year our committee is highly diverse with all different minorities and nations represented. Through this we have shown that it is possible for anyone to be elected no matter where you are from. We are starting to introduce speakers from ethnic backgrounds who speak about their difficulties within the law and how they overcome this.
President of the Oxford Brookes Law Society, 2019-2020
The Oxford Brookes Law Society is always looking to be as progressive as possible and we encourage diversity within the society. With over 500 members we have a strong cohort and know it is important that each member is fully represented; this can be seen through our amazing diverse committee.
