Black and minority ethnic forum

The Law Society will also be launching a black and minority ethnic (BME) forum in July to address inequalities of pay for BME solicitors.

The forum will provide the Law Society and BME groups with the opportunity to look at the issues highlighted by the survey more closely and present suggestions as to how to tackle them.

The Society of Asian Lawyers has pledged to work with the Law Society and employers to investigate the real causes of the problem and to implement practical solutions to redress the balance.
