THE EAGERLY awaited 10th anniversary UK Diversity Leal Awards took place on November 28 at the prestigious Leonardo Royal Hotel in St Paul’s, London.

These are the only industry awards which focus solely on recognising and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion across the legal profession. Showcased this year was an impressive line-up of finalists representing a broad spectrum of diversity, including gender, ethnicity, social mobility, mental health/wellbeing and access to justice.

PERFORMANCES
Over 350 guests attended the event, which was presented by barrister and TV personality (ITV’s The Chase) Dr Shaun Wallace. There were also stand-out performances from the classical violinist and cellist duo, Braimah and Mariatu Kanneh-Mason, and soulful singer/songwriter, Amahla.

Highlights from the glittering ceremony included the triple win by Dun-can Lewis Solicitors in the categories of BSN Rising Star (Ahmed Aydeed), Law Firm Diversity & Inclusion Initiative of the Year and Access to Justice.

Their success is attributed to the firm’s demonstrable commitment, as the largest provider of legal aid services in the UK, to providing access to justice for the most vulnerable and marginalised members of society in the UK.
