A webinar presented by the IBA Academic and Professional Development Committee

How can institutional educators promote and sustain diversity in the global legal profession? This session will explore how universities and other legal education providers can promote and embed diversity in the student experience, as a foundation for careers in the legal profession. Diversity and inclusion has emerged as a key theme for the future of the legal practice, and while law firms and chambers are taking steps to improve this, it is arguably even more important for law schools to take up this challenge, implanting best practice at an early stage in students’ careers.
