An event for black university students and graduates hosted by international law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner.

The proportion of black associates in the legal profession is well below where it should be, at just 2.2% in the most recent Law Society Statistics report. We at Berwin Leighton Paisner want to change that. We invite you to attend our event ‘Race for Change – Supporting future black lawyers’ to help us change the makeup of the profession, and to help you achieve your career goals. This award-winning event (Best Diversity Initiative, The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards 2016) will include practical application advice from BLP Graduate Recruitment Partner and exclusive inspirational talks from successful black legal professionals Segun Osuntokun (BLP Partner) and Miranda Brawn (Director of Legal and Transaction Management at Daiwa Capital Markets), amongst others. The day will begin and end with opportunities to network with a number of the speakers and BLP legal staff.

Travel expenses up to £100.00 per person will be covered.
