LSB pushes for law firms and chambers to publish diversity data
The Legal Services Board (LSB) has released proposals that could see law firms and barristers' chambers in the UK forced to publish data about the diversity of their workforce. The proposals, which have been backed by charities including Mencap, Sense and the Sutton Trust, come as part of the LSB's increased focus on diversity in the legal sector and opening up the profession to prospective lawyers from non-traditional backgrounds.
