What can the industry do to encourage BAME lawyers? TLT BAME Student Legal Conference 2019

We held our second BAME student legal conference at our London office in March, welcoming some of the UK's leading BAME lawyers to share their experiences.

As well as sharing advice with students considering a legal career, the discussion led to what the industry can and should do to improve diversity and ensure that BAME future lawyers get the support they need.

Drawing on their insight and advice, here are some thoughts from our speakers.


We would like to thank the panel for giving their time to share their personal stories and insights: Imran Khan QC; Dr Tunde Okewale MBE, Barrister and founder of the charity Urban Lawyers; Lara Oyesanya, UK Counsel and Director Legal for Klarna Bank AB; and Koser Shaheen, Chair of the Ethnic Minority Division Committee (EMDC) of the Law Society.
