We are holding an event on Wednesday 30th October: “Social Mobility in the Legal Aid Profession”.

The event will feature a debate with a panel of guests including Lucy Scott-Moncrieff – Director of Scott-Moncrieff & Associates Ltd and Chair of the Law Society’s Equality and Diversity Committee; David Johnston – CEO of the Social Mobility Foundation; Chris Topping – Partner at Broudie, Jackson & Canter, Simao Paxi-Cato – YLAL and Invictus Chambers and James Wakefield – Director of the Council of the Inns of Court. The discussion will be chaired by journalist Raphael Rowe.

Our keynote speaker is Baroness Hale.

Venue: London South Bank University, Keyworth Centre, Event Theatre

Time: 6.30-9.30 pm

Admission: Free but donations welcomed to cover expenses.

Places are limited to 300 and we are almost at capacity. We have a couple of spaces left so please register at the link today if you would like one. Anyone who doesn’t get a place will be on a reserve list and we will tell you if people have not arrived to take up their place before the event begins. For those on the reserve list we cannot guarantee there will be places available (in case you are travelling a long distance) but will of course include you if at all possible.

You will not receive a reply to registration today (30 October) but we will note your details on the reserve list and have them at the event.

If you do have a place we would be grateful if you could tell us in advance if you are unable to take it up so we can offer it to someone else.

We look forward to seeing you there. 

This event and the printing of our report is generously sponsored by Irwin Mitchell LLP, Leigh Day & Co, TV Edwards LLP and Invictus Chambers, as well as London South Bank University. We are very grateful to all our sponsors.
