Diversity in the profession

We monitor the diversity of those we regulate and collect diversity data from law firms every two years.

Firm diversity data tool

The data we collect from firms is available to view using our firm diversity data tool. This is an interactive and easy way to view information about each diversity characteristic by firm size, work type, number of branches and location. We have used a recognised method of statistical modelling to to get a better estimate of diversity in law firms.
