Social mobility in the UK

Realising our potential, together

Your potential, ability and talent – not your socio-economic background or schooling – determines your success here. To open up opportunities in the legal sector and make talented people of all backgrounds feel welcome, we support a number of powerful initiatives.

Future First

Our community partner: Future First

We work together to build students' confidence, increase their knowledge of the range of careers in an international law firm and inspire them to reach their full potential.
