Since 2011, the Legal Services Board has required regulators to monitor the equality and diversity of firms within the legal industry. As a result, all firms regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) are required to submit their equality and diversity data every two years. The SRA can then identify and inform the approach firms take to recruitment, promotion and other workplace policies.
Firms are also required to publish a summary of the data they collect.
