Katie Faulds, of Crasner Consulting, has written an inspiring article looking at the current state of social mobility within law firms and how it has improved over time.

Whilst there is much more still to be done, the legal profession is certainly trying to make a difference and we are proud that over 60 law firms have signed up to the PRIME Commitment and are committed to improving access to the legal profession through work experience.

Katie gives some insightful tips for law firms trying to be more socially inclusive. The first is to sign up to PRIME.
