Family Law in Partnership signatory to the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Charter

Diversity data published by Family Law in Partnership

As a signatory to the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Charter, Family Law in Partnership is committed to supporting diversity across the firm’s workforce. By promoting diversity we provide equality of opportunity and a work environment where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.

We invited all members of the firm to participate in a diversity survey in December 2013. Not all of those invited took part in the survey. Therefore the data referred to below reflects data from approximately 75% of our people (although the gender data reflects 100% of individuals at the firm). As a result, the statistics do not reflect the exact demographic make up of all Family Law in Partnership staff.

Approximately 55% of the partners and solicitors at Family Law in Partnership are women. Across the firm as a whole, women make up 68% of the workforce. Across all roles, roughly 30% of staff are aged 45-54, with 17% aged under 35. 82% of respondents identified their ethnic origin as white.

The data reveals that a majority of the respondents attended a UK state school, with approximately 30% attending a UK fee paying school. Just over 10% of respondents attended school outside the UK. Almost 40% of respondents did not attend university, with 18% having been part of the first generation in their immediate family to go to university.
