Diversity in law improves but ‘more to do’, warns SRA

Only 8% of partners at the largest firms were Black, Asian or of ethnic origin, compared to 23% at firms with two to five partners, and 35% at single-partner firms

Diversity within law firms has continued to slowly improve year-on-year, with smaller firms increasingly more diverse than larger ones, yet the SRA has said there is still “more to do” to improve diversity in the sector.
