Law Society: Increasing diversity in the volunteer community event

0 Comment

Event Date: 20th September

The Law Society is keen to attract and recruit more diverse Council and committee members.

The Law Society is keen to encourage greater diversity in the composition of its Council policy committees and Divisions. For example, we believe that women, BAME, LGBT and younger solicitors and solicitors with disabilities are under represented on the Council, which is the elected governing body of the Law Society and sets policy on behalf of the profession. A similar pattern holds true for recruitment to the specialist committees that advise on specific areas of the law. Opportunities also exist for members to play a pro active role on our Divisions committees.
