About Us

BLD, also known as the Black Lawyers Directory, was launched in 2006 and was the brainchild of Debo Nwauzu. BLD's aim is to make a real difference on diversity by changing lives and transforming businesses by taking positive actions - not just talking. We highlight areas where a lot is being done and areas that could do better. We also provide information and showcase the talent of black and ethnic minority members of the legal profession. Our aim is not to name and shame but to encourage, cajole and ask: "Why not?"  

"Black Letter Law is an example of a simple but brilliant idea., beautifully executed by Debo Nwauzu and her team. It is an essential publication on so many levels: as a straightforward directory to some of the most talented lawyers around; as a historical record of the inroads that black lawyers are making; and as an inspirational read for anyone thinking of a career in Law. Since it's launch, BLL has not only charted changes being made in the profession, but also helped bring that change about. I defy anyone to read it without getting a warm glow!"
 
Fiona Bawdon, Former editor of The Independent
