Top accolades for law firm

Have your say

Irwin Mitchell has won top legal industry awards for having the best graduate trainee recruitment campaign and the most effective diversity programme.

The Sheffield-based national law firm secured the accolades at the Lawyer’s Workplace And Diversity Awards.

The company gained its graduate award after restructuring its legal work placement programme with the aim of creating “a consistent and engaging experience for students,” and creating a campus ambassador programme to raise its profile in 17 target institutions.

The accolade for the firm’s diversity programme comes less than a month after it was named a Star Performer and ranked in the Top 100 UK companies for equality in the workplace by the gay and bisexual campaign group Stonewall and ranked among the top ten law firms for associate and partner gender diversity by the Black Solicitors Network.
