First published in 2006, the Law Society sponsored Diversity League Table is now widely considered to be one of the legal profession’s leading diversity reporting initiatives and publications. As a piece of diversity reporting it is unique within professional services.
Looking at the largest firms and chambers in the UK, the Diversity League Table reporting covers; gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disabilities, with social mobility introduced for the 2011 report. The results are presented as a series of organisational profiles and a series of leagues tables; ranking participating firms and chambers in key areas, as well as presenting an overall ranking, the Diversity League Table. Articles, interviews with leading figures and case studies complete picture; and the full report is published in autumn each year as a high quality, 140 page, perfect-bound, full colour publication.
Open to submissions from leading law firms and chambers, the Diversity League Table is supported at the highest levels of the profession, and also Government. This includes, the Law Society, Bar Council, Solicitors Regulation Authority, Bar Standards Board and the Legal Services Board. In 2010 we interviewed the Attorney General, Dominic Grieves and in 2011 the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg MP provided us with the foreword and that edition featured an interview with Mrs Justice Dobbs. Previous editions have featured interviews with senior executives from Barclays, BT and Google. And in 2014, Morgan Stanley, Hewlett Packard and Pearson plc.
