We are delighted that our report on social mobility was mentioned in Jane Croft's article 'Apprenticeships are new route into legal world' in the Financial Times. The article focuses on the fact that university is no longer a requirement for would-be lawyers. Social mobility is one of our key causes and we are thrilled that our work around this area will be used to raise awareness of the issues that such potential lawyers face.

Our report, 'Opening up or shutting out? Social mobility in the legal profession', is a joint effort between Byfield Consultancy and diversity champion Funke Abimbola - General Counsel and Company Secretary for Roche, the world's largest biotech company. The report presents the results of a survey of the top 50 UK law firms and their approach to social mobility and diversity.
