Herbert Smith Freehills is delighted to announce its partnership with Aspiring Solicitors, underscoring the firm's continual commitment to diversity and inclusion. Aspiring Solicitors focuses on improving diversity across the legal profession through engaging diverse student groups including BAME, LGBT, disability and socially mobile students. Through a combination of mentoring and coaching support, application advice and diversity-specific events, the organisation enables and enhances opportunities for students interested in pursuing a legal career to secure work placements and training contracts.
HSF is excited and proud to be partnering with Aspiring Solicitors and believes this will open further opportunities for the firm to meet, engage with and support students across a wide range of UK geographies, demographics and social, cultural and economic backgrounds.
Chris White, founder of Aspiring Solicitors, said: “Aspiring Solicitors is excited and honoured to be partnering with HSF in its commitment to hire the best talent from under-represented groups. I am already impressed with the genuine appetite from all levels of the firm to improve recruitment of excellent diverse talent and we are confident our members will take full advantage of the opportunities arising from the partnership.”
