During 2020 the Ethnic Minority Lawyers Division (EMLD) has been working with us on research to understand the experiences of Black and ethnic minority solicitors at different points in their careers.
Through desk research, an exploration of the data and a series of virtual roundtable discussions with solicitors and recruiters, we've identified and examined challenges around key career stages.
You can read our key findings and recommendations on our webpage.
