Social mobility

We believe that increasing social mobility is a powerful force for good.

Routes to careers within a law firm have traditionally favoured people who have benefitted from advantages, such as private education or a stable and supportive start in life. That can be a barrier to talented people from less advantaged backgrounds building their careers within a law firm.

Different backgrounds provide different perspectives, and that’s good for business. So our focus has been on encouraging people from diverse backgrounds to consider working in a law firm, and identifying and recruiting talent regardless of background.
