Diversity data collection: Gathering an evidence base about diversity across the legal workforce

We look at Legal Services Board (LSB) requirements for regulators, law firms and chambers and consider the responsibilities and role that firms play in gathering a more comprehensive evidence base about the diversity characteristics of the legal workforce. Individuals (lawyer and non-lawyer) who meet LSB-defined categories will have the opportunity to self-classify against a broad range of characteristics (including age, gender, disability, ethnic group, religion or belief, sexual orientation, socio-economic background and caring responsibilities). Firms are required to offer the opportunity to provide these data (on a voluntary basis), which will be passed to the SRA: we look at how.
