By doing this, we help to create a justice system that inspires confidence from the public – and that makes the profession stronger. By doing this, we help to create a fairer and more just society – and that makes all of us stronger. By doing this we create the inspiration for the next generation. And that makes the future stronger.
Over the last 200 years, LexisNexis has stood hand-in-hand with the profession in taking positive steps in the right direction. Now, as much as ever before, it’s important we keep advancing. It is within this ambition, that we are proud to sponsor the Access to Justice, BSN Sole Practitioner/Small law firm of the Year and BSN Rising Star awards.
Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do. It has an effect on the way our people experience life in a broad sense and life at Linklaters specifically. It is a critical business driver which informs every major business function; being leaders in Diversity and Inclusion equals being leaders in business.

Promoting diversity is a key priority for us. It is not simply the right thing to do, we also know that law firms which are diverse and inclusive are likely to be more successful. These awards show that there are many firms making real progress and many people we can be proud of. I am confident that by working together we can continue to improve the diversity profile at all levels in the profession and in all areas of the legal sector.

We are honoured to be the category sponsor of the ‘Outstanding BAME/Multi-cultural Employee Network Year’ for 2019. Employee Networks play a vital part of any diversity and inclusion agenda, they are the heartbeat of the employee base and in some instances the driving force behind some of the change in this space.
