Bridge Group launches new report on socio-economic background and early career progression in the Law

The Bridge Group, in collaboration with eight global law firms and the Sutton Trust, has today launched the first ever study on the correlation between background characteristics and early career progression in the legal profession.

The research includes the analysis of data relating to over 2,800 early career professionals and interviews with current and former employees from eight leading UK law firms: Allen & Overy, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, Clifford Chance, Dentons, Hogan Lovells, Holman Fenwick Willan, Linklaters and Pinsent Masons. The report provides a compelling evidence base to drive a shift in mindset, and to boost firms’ efforts to increase socio-economic diversity and inclusion in the legal sector.
