The LSB conducted qualitative research into legal professionals’ lived experiences of counter-inclusive practices. This is with the aim of informing future LSB research and policy activity on equality, diversity and inclusion.
The research will also be shared amongst other regulators and professional bodies to better understand the barriers people face during their careers and to better engage the sector in diversity and inclusion practices with a view to understanding how regulation can best address these issues.
The research was conducted by a third party, Solutions Strategy Research Facilitation Ltd, and was done through a series of focus groups and one-to-one online interviews.
Research was conducted throughout September with results to be published in a full report.
