Why are we particularly concerned with equality?
Equality in the legal profession not only ensures fair treatment and access to opportunities, it also ensures that justice and society are best served.
To get a good understanding of equality the better place to start statistics, and where possible avoiding opinions. Some useful statistics about equality in the UK legal profession can be found in this report.
