Diverse role models from the legal sector share advice for a career in the law

One of Future First’s longstanding partners, law firm Taylor Wessing, has produced a video by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) employees, offering advice to young people on how to pursue a legal career.

Lorraine Langham, Chief Executive Officer at Future First, said: “This video provides fantastic advice and guidance to any young person interested in pursuing a legal career, but especially those from BAME communities.

“By using their staff as relatable role models, Taylor Wessing is showing that a good legal career is very much open to everyone with the right aptitude who is prepared to work hard.”

Future First works with a diverse range of employers to help thousands of students to experience life in the workplace. Taylor Wessing has worked with the charity for several years to offer insight days and mentoring programmes to students from all walks of life so the option of a career in law is opened up to them.
