Supporting Black heritage lawyers to navigate their careers in partnership with the Black Counsel Forum

To increase the diversity of the legal sector and provide Black heritage lawyers with opportunities to connect we sponsor the Black Counsel Forum, an annual conference for Black heritage legal professionals.

Founded by solicitor Sharon Thomas, the event aims to be a safe space for Black heritage lawyers to learn from each other by sharing lived experiences and best practices. Attendees are equipped with practical road-tested strategies and leadership programmes to help them navigate their careers successfully and network with experienced barristers and solicitors in the UK.

Catering for all levels from seasoned professionals to those starting out in their careers, the conference features presentations and discussions from thought leaders on a range of topics including career planning, developing effective networks and strategies for achieving professional goals.
