As the primary voice of black solicitors in England and Wales, BSN is committed to achieving equality of access, retention, and promotion for black solicitors and those aspiring to join the legal profession.

BSN’s national membership now stands at several thousand and continues to grow. An inclusive rather than exclusive network, our reputation is such that we attract and welcome members from across the cultural and diversity spectrum.

Working in partnership with our supporters and members, BSN creates and delivers a comprehensive range of initiatives which contribute to ensuring that our members are supported at all stages of their career and professional development.

BSN continually engages with law firms, chambers, institutions and professional bodies in driving our respective diversity agendas forward and provides thought leadership on diversity and inclusion best practice to the legal sector.


Join us

As BSN continues to grow and support an increasing number of people, we are keen to establish partnerships with organisations who, like us, see the importance and benefit of, and are committed to furthering,  diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and beyond.

It is to be celebrated that organisations are now genuinely and enthusiastically looking at ways to diversify and foster greater inclusion – partnering with one of the most prominent professional diversity organisations in the country is a great opportunity for you to join a growing list of employers who are proud to add their name to our cause.
