BSN Diversity League Table 2010: The Results

| 15/12/2010 | 0 Comments

The 5th Diversity League Table presents a new order, as Linklaters and One Crown Office Row now head up the overall league tables for firms and Chambers respectively in 2010.

The Diversity League Table, from the Black Solicitors Network (BSN), is an important management tool and one of the legal profession’s leading diversity reporting publications. Looking across four diversity strands of disability, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation, the publication offers the diversity profiles of many of the UK’s leading firms and Chambers, also ranking them in key areas before compiling the various tables which come together to give the overall Diversity League Table.

Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone MP said, “I am delighted to see so many firms and Chambers voluntarily getting involved with the Diversity League Table.  By taking such action voluntarily they’re setting a really positive example not just to the rest of the legal profession but to every other employer, and I’d encourage other organisations to follow their lead.”
