The way law firms recruit new lawyers to join their teams has changed significantly in recent years.

Much more emphasis is placed on keeping track of candidates that apply for new roles and, indeed, those that are offered positions. Law firms place a great deal of importance on maintaining a fair, open and honest recruitment process. This has led to an increase in requests for personal information such as race, religion and sexual orientation.

At CapeClarke, we also regard diversity as an essential component of the recruitment of lawyers. It can result in a more effective workforce for our clients offering a wide range of skills and personalities. In order to meet clients expectations, we have established our own diversity policy and ask candidates to provide relevant information during the registration process. All information is given voluntarily and it assists us in collating valuable information about the candidate database we continue to build.

We would be happy to provide an accurate and up-to-date record of our diversity statistics to any legal employer who wishes to get in touch.
