he charter was established in 2009 by the Law Society, BT and the Society of Asian Lawyers and is designed to help firms and practices turn their commitment to diversity and inclusion in to positive, practical action for their businesses, staff and clients.
This is achieved by helping practices to record and measure their practices, policies and procedures against a set of diversity and inclusion standards and by providing them with opportunities to share best practice advice and guidance with colleagues from across the profession.
As of July 2018, 490 firms and practices have signed up to the charter, representing more than a third of the legal profession in England and Wales.
The Diversity and Inclusion Charter is a public commitment by legal practices to promote the values of diversity and inclusion throughout their business. Whether it's through recruitment, retention, career progression or training and development, all our signatories are committed to improving opportunities for people in the legal profession, regardless of their background or circumstances.
