We have long been ahead of the curve when it comes to breaking down barriers to the legal profession and over the last decade, we have remained committed to ensuring our processes are as fair and unbiased as possible. In that time, we have made significant changes to our selection and attraction methods to make sure that we are able to access and identify exceptional talent in all its forms. In 2013, we were one of the first firms to introduce CV blind interviewing. In 2015, we took things a step further and worked with RARE recruitment to become founding partner of the contextual recruitment system, allowing us to fairly benchmark candidates against each other and further break down barriers to the profession. In 2017, we made the bold decision to remove minimum academic requirements for our roles. We are confident that the changes we have made allow us access to a much broader pool of talent, whilst allowing each individual to showcase their authentic journeys and experiences through the process.
