Following on from last year’s celebration of Black History month, The Law Society and Black Solicitors Network (North) are pleased to bring an exciting and inspirational event to Manchester on 24 October.
Join us on Wednesday, 24th October 2018 at the office of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

18.00 – 19.00 Main event
19.00 – 20.00 Afro-Caribbean inspired buffet and networking opportunity
This event is free to attend but spaces are limited.
For this event, we will be considering how law firms can inspire, support, and encourage the region’s talented group of minority lawyers to flourish in their careers.
We have secured a stellar line-up of speakers who can share their experiences of their respective careers to date.
Simon Davis, Deputy President of The Law Society and Partner at Clifford Chance
Olivia Balson, Global Centre Director at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
Harold Brako, Partner at Addleshaw Goddard

The panellists will provide you with an opportunity to hear from lawyers who have strived in their careers to further the diversity agenda.
As one of the key pillars of society, the law underpins many aspects of daily life. Diversity in the legal profession is therefore vital to ensuring the voices of all the communities we serve are reflected by the people working within the legal sector.
