Aspiring Solicitors is a leading diversity platform for aspiring lawyers in the UK. Chris White (the founder of Aspiring Solicitors) and Akin (AKD CEO) actually met on a train and when they got talking realised the synergy between their two organisations. Aspiring Solicitors were doing some amazing work to address under-representation of “underprivileged groups” within the legal profession and AKD had developed an innovative training tool the Equally Yours™ learning map focused on diversity and inclusion. So they decided to team up and the results have been brilliant.

Paving the way for the next generation of the legal profession

Chris experienced discrimination first- hand, he was told he didn’t graduate from the “right” university and that because of his accent, he would need elocution lessons. He was determined to help others who were underrepresented and disadvantaged so he left a successful career in Law and set up Aspiring Solicitors.

Aspiring Solicitors are literally changing the lives of hundreds of graduates but are also getting law firms to rethink the way they recruit. Aspiring Solicitors core aim is educating and informing the next generation about the importance of diversity, and enhancing and promoting diversity from within the legal profession.

Collaboration with AKD Solutions
Through our partnership with Aspiring Solicitors, we have been able to tailor our services to meet the needs of prominent organisations within the UK legal profession. Our collective expertise has been crucial to the work we have undertaken with clients such as Simmons and Simmons, Bristows and Olswang. We look forward to continuing to work as partners to strength our specialism within this sector.
