The Challenge

How can the legal profession change to better manage diversity, inclusivity and talent for future business success?

This year we will be running two competitions, one for law students, and one for Associates.

The Winners

  • One year’s free subscription to all ALM Brands
  • An invite to pitch your idea at a round table made up of Managing Partners and General Counsel.

The Criteria

  • Your idea can address one or all aspects of the challenge: How can the legal profession change to better manage diversity, inclusivity and talent for future business success?
  • It must be practical and if it involves financial investment, you should state how much
  • It could be a small project involving a single law firm or in-house legal department; or it could be industry wide
  • You must be able to demonstrate that your idea is unique
